First they brought us communicators, in the form of flip-top cell phones. Now researchers have set their sights on creating the "replicators" from Star Trek, in the form of 3D printers that can concoct pizzas from shelf-stable powdered ingredient packs.

College kids of the future, you may want to pay attention to this one.

TECHNOLOGY: Print Your Food

I love to eat.  I even like cooking, although I don't do enough of it because it can be time consuming, and you have to clean and do dishes afterwards.  I've always been impressed by Star Trek's dining hall where Kirk and Spock punch in any type of food they want into a computer and a tray immediately slides out with the meal of their choice.
