Japanese company Open Meals is looking to blend science with sushi and create 3D printed sushi tailored to a consumer’s needs. The company are aiming to have this rollout by 2020. The store plan would involve robotic arms, a 3D printer, and biodata driven technology.
The actual sushi-making process would involve customers searching, downloading, and uploading food data to a digital platform that connected a robotic arm to a 3D printer that would print pixel cubes from an edible gel. Open Meals also unveiled that they want to be able to incorporate biological data from consumers to analyse what nutrients they are lacking and produce sushi that caters to those needs.
