This week NASA announced plans to construct a 3D food printer that will eventually provide food for astronauts in space. The obvious prototype of choice? Pizza.

Assistant professor Barry Kudrowitz, director of our Product Design program, will speak with WCCO’s John Hines on Thursday, May 23 at 10:10 a.m. about how 3D printing is changing the way we think about everything from food to design and beyond. Hint: NASA isn’t the first to try 3D food. A former roommate of Kudrowitz at MIT, Marcelo Coelho, created the prototype and concept designs for a food 3D printer called the Cornucopia four years ago.
