Are There Countertop Food 3D Printers?
We did an episode a week or two ago on food 3D printing coming out of CES and on an article you wrote for your Inc. column “By Design.” We have had some more people write in with questions about that. The question was: “Are there really any countertop, less expensive food 3D printers, in particular chocolate printers?” I can totally understand because the idea of making lacy chocolate designs and other intricate things that are hard to do by hand sounds great.

He broke his arm in the NFC Championship game, had surgery the next day, and had a whole bunch of screws put in the bone of his arm to hold it together. Theoretically, he can play, but he will probably be in quite a bit of pain even though it was about two weeks ago. It’s still not healed yet; that takes a while.
