A 3D Printing Restaurant Is Coming To London

It sounds like the future — a restaurant where the food you eat is printed, and even the utensils you eat with are too.

Well, now it's happening. Food Ink, the world's first 3D-printing restaurant, opens in Shoreditch this month.

During the day there'll be chance to taste 3D-printed snacks, you can try using 3D printers and pens, and lounge on 3D-printed furniture.

In the evening, (if you can fork out £250) there's a multi-sensory nine-course taster menu made using the printers by Joel Castanye of Michelin-starred El Bulli and La Boscana.

There's only 10 tickets available for each night and demand is expected to be very high.

If you can't make the dinner (or the price) you can livestream the dinner.
