Good enough to eat

Nestle in South Africa went all sweet and gooey on the recent launch of Android's KitKat OS with an exhibition of 3D printed chocolate sculptures. The 10 sculptors managed to resist scoffing their works of art before putting them on display at the Museum of African design for public viewing.

There was at least a tenuous connection to Android, with one sculpture being a little droid and the designs were created using free 3D modelling tools on the Android platform. If nothing else, it might make chocolate makers see an alternative to moulds for making their confectionery treats.
