Someday in the near future, restaurateurs will be able to replace inefficient or insubordinate chefs with one, brilliant machine. You see, right now, the super-geniuses at MIT are developing a device about the size of a large toaster oven called the Cornucopia that "prints" food much in the same way that a color printer prints a picture -- by adding different layers one at a time. In addition to creating a variety of different textures and shapes, the Cornucopia will be able to mix and create flavor combinations with more precision than a human can.
