3D printing is a kind of art. We have created some cool stuff using 3D printing from toucan beaks to houses. But, we’re just scratching the surface of its capabilities. A Japanese design studio has decided to create something where you could put it while some are trying to produce 3D-printed food.
ReDeStu is selling porcelain soy sauce dishes for a modest amount of ¥ 1,080 ($10). They will “reveal” a painting once you fill them up. They consisted of Japanese national symbols such as Mount Fuji, Itsukushima Shrine and cute kitties and puppies.
Soy sauce is originated from a Chinese product called “chiang” over 3,000 years ago. Around the 1600s they first came to Europe through Dutch and Japanese trading. The word “soy” is the Japanese word for soy sauce, “shoyu.”
Now there are lots of kinds of soy sauce with different production methods, regional variations or color, and taste differences. The traditional soy sauce is made by soaking soybeans in the water while roasting and crushing the wheat. After that, the soybeans and wheat are mixed with a culturing mold such as Aspergillus, and keep for two to three days to develop. Then they add water and salt and keep the entire mixture for fermentation anywhere for five to eight months.
It was very expensive when 3D printing first came out the printers. But now, 3D printing has become a trend and there are many manufacturers who produce 3D printers and they have become more accessible to both businesses and regular people.
All That 3D wrote, “If you examine the 3D printing market today, you will find tons of 3D printers brands that offer different features. Some are packed with powerful functionalities and are offered at a much higher price. Others offer the basic functions and are sold at a much cheaper price. However, in the coming years, you can expect more powerful 3D printers at a very affordable price.”
First, Plastic was used by 3D printing as a material and as the technology progresses there were more materials. Now you can use ceramic, gold, silver, titanium, gypsum and even biological substances for 3D printing.
Here’s a video of what happens when you pour in the sauce
