*I actually have NO idea if Lynette has plans to use the Foodini in space, but of course that's where my mind goes! Where would YOU use it? 

3D food printing allows people to be able to get high quality, tasty, nutritious food anywhere. This brings up a ton of questions for me:

Is this going to put chefs out of business?? 

If the most important ingrediant in food is love, how can a machine create food that feels as though it was made by a human?

Will you be able to get open source recipes for awesome food that you can just print in your kitchen?

Will professional chefs be able to sell their recipes to be 3D printed?? 

What does this mean for the future of restaurants? 
CNN has named Lynette one of only seven 'tech superheroes' to watch, and Fortune says she “wants to sell the 21st century’s version of the microwave.” (As in, a device will revolutionize every kitchen, outpacing the functionality of the last kitchen revolution: the microwave.) She believes that people would be healthier if everybody eats freshly made wholesome meals and snacks. But, it needs to be easier and faster for everyone to create healthy foods made with fresh ingredients. So she’s helping to build a new generation kitchen appliance.

Lynette is a co–founder and CMO at Natural Machines, the makers of Foodini: the first 3D food printer + IoT (Internet of Things) kitchen appliance to contribute to a healthy eating lifestyle. Foodini makes all kinds of savory and sweet foods, using fresh, real ingredients.
