Co-founders Lynette Kucsma & Emilio Sepulveda

We have seen dozens of 3D Printers seek funding on the various crowdfunding platforms.  Whether on Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or the dozens of other platforms out there, Crowdfunding and 3D printing seem to be two niche markets which go together like 3d printed spaghetti and meatballs.

On that note, one of the more innovative 3D printers we have seen utilize crowdfunding for start up funding, is Foodini. Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting with the founders behind the company that’s trying to add a robotic chef to as many kitchens as possible.  We covered Foodini on March 26th, the day in which they launched their Kickstarter Campaign, so it was certainly nice to actually meet the founders, in person, at the “Inside 3D Printing” Conference in New York City.  Both Co-founders, CMO Lynette Kucsma, and CEO, Emilio Sepulvedu, were on hand, and gave a 45 minute presentation about their company, as well as where they see the technology headed.

Kucsma has ten years of experience working within the technology industry, including a stint with Microsoft.  She also worked in the fashion and consumer retail industries for some time.  She is a self proclaimed, healthy eater, and a “pretty good cook.”  Sepulveda, on the other hand, has an expertise in business strategy and innovation.  They seem like a natural fit to run a technologically advanced, healthy, 3D food printing company.

The company which is seeking $100,000 over a 30 day period, has already brought in over $67,000, and the campaign still has 13 days remainingfood-2.  They seem to be well on their way of reaching their stated goal, allowing the company to bring their first product to market.

Kucsma told us that in addition to the people backing their project on Kickstarter, they are receiving multiple emails from around the globe, asking to purchase the machines directly.  The demand and interest certainly seem to be there.

The future of this technology could be huge.

Kucsma stated, “The way technology is evolving these days and how you can incorporate 3D printing in your other appliances, I could see 3D printing being in Ovens, or 3D printing embedded into Microwaves.”

Emilio Sepulveda Speaking At “Inside 3D Printing”

She also suggested that one day in the near future there may be “3D printer ovens.” Such a device would first print out your meal, and then cook it for you. Unlike the way technology sort of sluggishly grew in the 1970’s with the Microwave oven, today technology is progressing in a different fashion.  Kucsma went on to say “we will see 3D printing appliances advance a lot faster.”

Both Co-founders of this company seem to be very passionate about their product, excited about its future, and in a process of constant innovation.  This is to ensure that they produce a product that isn’t just for show, but has functional advantages for professionals, as well as every day people alike.  Be sure to check out their Kickstarter campaign, as well as the Foodini discussion thread at 3DPrintBoard.  You will have until April 26th to back their Kickstarter campaign, allowing you to obtain the Foodini printer at a discount to what they will retail for.
