Burritobot is created with open source technology, that can be programmed to build the perfect edible unit.
A novel way to make burritos using a 3D Printer. That’s Burritob0t, Marko Manriquez’s graduate thesis project for the Tisch School of the Arts. 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the process of building an object based on a 3D computer model by squirting layer upon layer of a given material until the finished product is realized.
Normally these objects would be built of melted threads from spools of plastic filament. For his Burritob0t project Manriquez chose to use ingredients typical to Mexican cuisine like beans, cheese, salsa and sour cream. These are kept in containers on a carousel which rotates to feed whichever is called for into an extruder, to taste.
