NanoFood

Abstract:
"Tea, earl grey, hot," commanded Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the starship Enterprise, and a steaming cup of tea would appear instantly in the futuristic food replicator on the wall. Having your food just the way you like it, in an instant, might not be just something from science fiction… but simply from science.

Nanotechnologists are working on adding ingredients that could one day "program" the contents of your cupboard, at a moment's notice, filling your pantry with, "Functional foods… to enhance its health value, its taste, its smell, its general quality," explains Harvard University David Weitz. Using the same technique they might even make taking your medicines as easy eating a candy bar.
