New 3D printer not only lets you print fruit on demand, but also allows you to combine fruits to create your own tasty combinations.
Someone on Maui has just discovered that a bunch of miscellaneous electronic bits paired with enough tasty tropical fruit can make a laser cannon. One that you can then eat. Will wonders never cease?*
In classic MIT fashion, researchers decided gently squeezing fruit to check its ripeness [insert crude sexual innuendo here] wasn't good enough, so they created a hand-held sensor that detects when fruit is ripening. Oh, and it's affordable too. Show-offs. At least it's more kind to the fruit than this gadget.
Fruit stickers don't serve much of a purpose once you've bought the fruit they're attached to. But a new concept would give them an actual purpose, turning them from waste into a waste-saver.
