Ford has teamed up with 3D System to create tiny, chocolate versions of the new 2015 Mustang. The small, sugar-filled Mustangs are the first 3-D-printed cars that can be eaten, the companies claim.
3D Systems and Ford created the chocolaty confections as part of Valentine's Day-themed marketing for the 2015 Mustang, which was announced in December and will go on sale in late 2014.
Meanwhile, 3D Systems has built a reputation for itself in the 3-D printing world thanks to the ChefJet, a 3-D printer announced in January that can make objects in chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry or watermelon flavor. The ChefJet will go on sale later this year starting for less than $5,000.
Ford, however, noted that 3D Systems did not use the ChefJet to create the chocolate Mustangs. Instead it used early prototypes of the ChefJet.
