We all know that you can print 3D things now  but what about food? Would a food printing machine totally reinvent the ready meal?

It seems it might with the invention of the Foodini – a prototype machine designed to revolutionise home cooking.

So far the Foodini can make pizza, pasta and cakes - not going to help too much with the obesity crisis then. Aimed at families and restaurants, with capsules of fresh ingredients sold separately the Foodini might be a regular fixture in kitchens sooner than you think.

The machine is expected to hit shops mid next year for £835, leading us to decide that next year will be the year of 3D printing.
