Oh, it is on, my friends! Mashable is reporting that German company Katjes has invented a 3D printer capable of printing for-real gummy candies, and as far as I'm concerned, my Trekkie-nerd fantasy of installing a food replicator unit in my kitchen is well on its way to becoming reality.

Gummy candies are by far my favorite candy and 3D is my favorite kind of printing, so I will obviously be purchasing a ticket to Berlin as soon as possible. (Sadly, the "Beam me up, Scotty!" technology is lapsing far behind the replicator technology.)

Who's with me?
