The Edible Chocolate Brain is a brain-shaped chocolate candy created by 3D technology and production company Inition in UK. A team member and also co-founder Andy Millins had his brain MRI scanned and the scan data was converted into a 3D model in STL file format ready for 3D printing. Using their 3D printer ZPrinter 450 they created a latex mould for pouring in the chocolate and form the chocolate brain.
After consuming his own brain, Andy Millins said: "I've been involved in some weird 3D projects over the years at Inition but eating my own chocolate brain was one of the most bizarre."
On Instructables the team shows the process how to make your own chocolate brain.
