As always, Nedroid‘s comics have successfully tapped directly into my pizza brain. The internet’s pretty great, but I simply won’t be satisfied until I can download my pie in 5 minutes or less!

Sound too good (or bad) to be true? You’re probably right, at least when it comes to enjoying a quality pie. But grabbing a pizza off the internet isn’t quite as sci-fi as you might think.

The burgeoning field of 3D printing is working on domestic models that will deliver a growing variety of products to your home, no shipping required. Biotech companies are already adapting the technology to develop organ and tissue printing, and start-up Modern Meadow is working to create eco-friendly printable meats and leathers.

Who knows? Internet pizza may not be such a distant future, after all…
