Army: Wants To Use 3D Printers To Customize Soldiers' Diets

The Army Wants to Use 3D Printers to Customize Soldiers’ Diets

Dana Hatic | February 2, 2016

U.S. soldiers could one day subsist on customized nutritional meals hot off the 3D printer. Researchers at the Army's Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center in Natick, Mass. are working on methods of syncing wearable technology with 3D printing to provide soldiers the exact nutritional sustenance they need while deployed, according to Tech Insider.
These foods won't be your average Army MREs (that's "meals, ready-to-eat") either. Within the next 10 to 15 years, soldiers could reportedly be outfitted with wearable tech that measures individual physiology and can relay that data to a system that will assess what a soldier needs to eat.
