It’s lunchtime on the East Coast, which seems like a good time to talk about the BurritoB0t, which is arguably the tastiest invention to come out of the 3D printer trend. Yes: it prints edible burritos.

BurritoB0t is a senior thesis project by NYU ITP student Marko Manriquez that fuses Mr. Manriquez’s “two passions – digital fabrication and good food.” Also, it prints burritos.

According to TechCrunch:

The system will let you use your iPhone to order different condiments and toppings. Sliders control the amount of salsa, guac, and crema. It uses a Thing-o-matic and is currently in beta form, so don’t expect it to make you a burrito anytime soon.

Mr. Manriquez’s website says that he’ll be demoing the BurritoB0t in New York this summer, so tell your belly to stop growling right this instant.
