The Informational Egg

Thingiverse member Dnewman has produced some nutritional templates for Eggbot  owners (Eggbots are devices designed to print on eggs, ping-pong balls, grapefruit, etc). Clever!

Dnewman’s solution is beyond elegant. Why not just print the nutritional information right on the produce using an Eggbot?? I just LOVE this idea! I would absolutely buy eggs from any producer that did this. Not only is this idea so so so cool, but it opens the door to all kinds of other food labeling robots. I mean, who wouldn’t want a Mangobot 2000? Oh, and if you’re going to buy an apple, pear, or other fruit or vegetable where the exterior is consumed, why not just print with an edible ink? 12
