 Open Meals is working on a 3D printing system to "teleport" food.

TOKYO -- Humans have succeeded in sending people and animals into space. Japanese companies are now putting their minds together to see if they can instantly "teleport" gourmet food to the heavens and other faraway places.

A project called Open Meals, led by Japanese ad powerhouse Dentsu, is researching and developing 3D printers and base materials that can build food, in an effort to realize such food transfer in the near future.
