The DishMaker

A friend just sent me a link to this incredible invention that will make recycled / recyclable dishes on demand:

MIT Media Lab’s Counter Intelligence Group, which develops innovative kitchen designs, has created a machine that makes dishes on demand and recycles them after diners have finished a meal. The dishes are made from food-grade, nontoxic acrylic wafers, which are shaped into cups, bowls and plates when heated, then resume their original wafer shape when they are reheated and pressed.

How cool would that be? Acrylic wafers!

    Kick ass. Do you have to wash them before putting them back in the machine?

    That’s the best part!! No more dishwashing! EVER!
    Well, they say they’re still having a hard time working out grease issues, but I’m sure they’ll find a way.

    I saw this on food network…kitchens of the future or something. I was so excited…it breaks my heart every time I see huge amounts of disposables being trashed after picnics and parties.
