A 3D printer that uses processed cheese may sound like a good idea, but the technology just isn’t quite there yet.

Andrew Maxwell-Parish, who manages a creative technology and interactive electronics lab at California College of the Arts, has been experimenting with Easy Cheese to create some delicious new art.

The device can easily cover your cracker, but anything else is a bit more complicated and just turns into a complete mess.

He does note that this is just the “initial testing” phase, so some smearing was expected.

Maybe one day you will be able to 3D print a home for yourself out of cheese, but until that time, it’s probably best to just squirt it in your mouth as God intended.

Japanese researchers at Aerial Burton have developed new technology that can project text and images in the sky without using a screen.

According to DigInfo:

"The images are constructed by firing a 1kHz infrared pulse laser into a 3D scanner, which reflects and focuses the pulses of the laser to specific points in the air. The molecules at that point are ionized, and the energy is released as photons."

The company thinks that the device could be used in emergency situations to relay information. Or maybe we can just use it to summon Batman?
