All the major supermarket chains are taking one more step towards a more efficient future with the soon to be released edible ink in printer cartridges.
Tesburys and Sainco, just two of the market leaders will be rolling out the innovative new home delivery system in the new year and are expecting it to be taken up by mainly office workers at first, unable to pop to the shops at lunch time, who will instead download a template for their meal of choice in PDF format, print it off using the edible ink cartridges and special paper, and voila, a chicken tikka salad sandwich fresh from your printer.
'Obviously the textures require a little more work' said one supermarket executive, 'but the colours and flavourings are all there.'
The trick is in the coding of the downloadable digestible, apparently. The ink in all the cartridges is the same, but it is how the 'nanno-filaments' that are suspended in the edible ink are told what to taste like by the downloaded program.
