From jet engines to office buildings, we've seen all manner of things constructed using 3D-printing techniques, but we're yet to see it used to make something that can cook us a hot meal. Until now that is. The Pyra, by Oakland-based company Fathom, is the first 3D-printed smart oven.
Despite taking its name (at least in part) from “pyro” – the Greek word for fire – the Pyra smart oven is entirely flameless. Made from 3D-printed, engineering-grade plastics, the device uses a fan in its base to circulate air over heating elements and through an intricate system of air ducts, achieving temperatures of up to 375° F (190° C).
