Is Your Kitchen Ready for Hershey’s 3D Chocolate Printer?

You know those days when you need chocolate, but don’t want to put on pants? 3D Systems and The Hershey Company have teamed up to make sure you don’t have to.

3D Systems revealed the CocoJet, a 3D chocolate printer, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas today. That’s right chocoholics, you can now print chocolate.

The 3D printer creates intricate, geometric designs through synchronized printing and the movement of a platform. After each layer is printed, the platform moves down momentarily in order to let the chocolate cool.

3D Systems has yet to announce a specific time frame for when the CocoJet will be available to businesses and consumers, but they definitely intend to bring it to market. The company’s ChefJet and ChefJet Pro, which make various types of candy, retail for about $5,000 and $10,000, respectively.

Prepare your bodies and bank accounts. Discard your pants.
