A pair of M.I.T. grad students have devised the Cornucopia, a "food printer" which uses 3-D printing technology to create . . . well . . . I don't know what.
Fortunately for everyone, the Cornucopia currently exists as nothing more than a concept and some groovy renderings. There isn't a working model yet, and let us all hope there never will be. Why am I being so harsh? Because this is the worst idea (not devised by politicians) I have seen in a decade. Apparently Amit Zoran and Marcelo Coelho, the inventors of the Cornucopia, live entirely on intravenous glucose solutions or something, because they seem to have a very odd idea of what food is and what qualities are important.
