Kansas City has an amazing new candy invention to try! Magic Candy Factory has taken root inside of Go! Calendars, Games & Toys inside of Oak Park Mall. And it is so cool!
This is a 3D gummy candy printer. It prints edible words and shapes. Here is the machine:
The Magic Candy Factory is based on FDM (fused deposition modeling.) In this case, a special mixture of natural ingredients is heated up and applied using a nozzle. The results are different shapes and a unique choice of combinations which combine to create the custom masterpiece and are instantly ready to eat. The shapes were developed by the Katjes team with the help of 3D modelling software and turned into G-codes. The latter tell the printer where, at what speed and what frequency it needs to apply each of the layers.
The plug n’ play operating system guarantees quick installation and ease of use for the operator and consumer. This model also includes an important feature for the final customer. A camera is installed in every printer which records the printing process precisely. In e-mails, customers don’t just receive shipping confirmation after production, but time-lapse videos of their own personal treats in the making.
Here’s a time-lapse video of my daughter Olivia’s name and elephant being made. It’s so cool, and really didn’t take too long to make in real-time, either:
Besides enjoying the fun 3D shapes, the candy is so good! Available flavors include Gorgeous Green Apple, Luscious Lemon, Tasty Tropical Blue, Sublime Strawberry, Marvelous Mango, Elegant Elderberry, Beautiful Blackcurrant and Ripe Raspberry. And you can have finish such as edible glitter and fizzy candy on top!
Here’s photos of Olivia’s candy and more that was make (including my name and a butterfly!:
