Researchers say the experiment was a step toward making it practical to use 3D printing in mechanically-assembled food.

One of the co-authors of the study says if food made by a 3D machine and a laser seem off-putting, it shouldn't be because it's much like using an oven or microwave to cook food.

"Don't worry... I'm fine."
