Researchers from the Army's Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) are developing 3D printed meals customized for each soldier. NSRDEC researchers are in the early development stage of new MRE concepts that could change the way the military eats meals. By combining wearable technology capable of measuring a soldier's individual physiology with food 3D printers, future MRE’s will be automatically generated meals that have been tailored for the specific nutritional needs of each soldier. While the new MRE is still a few years out, the technology could be ready for deployment as early as 2025. You can read more over on
