A Spanish company called Natural Machines has invented a way to print food using a 3D printer. The $1,400 printer, called Foodini, builds up layers of different ingredients, then pumps out the final product ready for cooking.

The machine uses capsules of fresh, unprocessed ingredients and is intended to get more people preparing additive-free food in very little time.
