NEW FEATURE: built-in 3D scanner. Now included in Foodini!
We are really excited to announce that Foodini will ship with built-in 3D scanner hardware. We’ve been working with our partners for quite some time to have this hardware installed in the first shipping units of Foodini, and today we can confirm that it will definitely be included.
If you have already pledged for a Foodini via Kickstarter or purchased Foodini via other channels, your Foodini will automatically include this 3D scanner hardware – no action is necessary on your part. This additional feature is included FREE of charge: no additional charges will be added to your pledge.
With a built-in 3D scanner, you can:
- Scan an object, then save the resulting digital shape and print it (using chocolate, for example).
- Scan an object, such as a dish, or a cupcake, and print on top of it. Great for plate decorations or adding decorations on food already made.
The 3D scanner will have a resolution of 0.1mm.
Since Foodini is a connected appliance, meaning it is connected to the internet, we will provide software and firmware updates as they become available, even after Foodini ships. The 3D scanner comes with a series of features that will be upgraded as we update our software, thus adding additional capabilities in the future. Your Foodini will stay on the cutting edge of 3D food printing technology.
Can’t wait for new features to be added or have your own ideas about how to use the 3D scanner? We’ll release APIs for third-parties to build applications with the 3D scanner.
Not a technical person? Don’t know what an API is? Don’t worry. What this announcement means to you is that one day soon you will easily be able to 3D scan objects, providing even more functionality than before.
Thank you for your support!
