Technology moves at an unprecedented rate. I think that we all realize that as we discover cool gadgets that are underway or already out on the market today. Recently I found out about 3-D printers. Printers that can print objects in three dimensions. Three dimensional printers can print out almost any sort of objects, ranging from jawbones to teeth to even guitars. However, recently researchers have made printers that now make chocolate squares!

Just last year, a group of scientists from the U.K built a printer that can make anything a regular printer would…except with chocolate ink. Named “Choc Creator Version 1”, it is available for purchase, although it comes with a hefty price tag at $4,600. 

Check out the following video in action and be sure to throw in your thoughts about whether you think our time, money and efforts are being used for the wrong purposes? Do we REALLY need a chocolate printer in society right now? What do you guys think about our efforts being put towards better purposes?
