Burritob0t: a 3D printer prints edible Mexican foodMarko Manriquez developed his thesis project as a graduate for the Interactive Telecommunications Program at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU: the Burritob0t, a 3D printer that produce burritos, yes, ingredients for Mexican food.

Manriquez's first cardboard prototype was modelled after Cornell's Fab@Home diy printer. From there he is able to add a turret to carousel the ingredients (8-10 of them for now) along the gantry and make a larger gantry and folding platform. The device is a custom Reprap-based machinery, with the Frostruder MK2 from MakerBot, a syringe + air compressor based design. When the pressure valve is on the pressure push the ingredients through syringes. For stop, the pressure valve is closed, and the relief valve is opened. Manriquez is meanwhile experimenting the stepper controlled Universal Paste Extruder. For more updates, stay tuned.

Manriquez has completed his Burritob0t 3D printer's mechatronic platform and is planing for crowd-funding this project on Kickstarter. He created a video of his thesis concept below for Burritob0t and Kickstarter.

Maybe not for long you can have the edible and customizable Burritob0t burrito at home - will you be the first one to try and challenge the traditional kitchen?
