The Army is trying to implement 3-D printers for their day to day activities, the latest being the development of 3-D print food for soldiers.
Army researchers will try to find ways to 3-D print nutritious food with less heavy packaging than the current military meals.The Department of Defense has just approved research funding and the research may take some time to produce results. While regular printers put ink on paper, 3-D printers blast liquids and powders into complex shapes. But it’s not clear if printers could mold a solid like carrots — and what would happen to the food’s nutritional value.
According to military scientists and 3-D experts, these meals for soldiers are on track to be ready by 2025. Read More>>
