A new twist on pasta – could programmable pasta shapes be the future?

Programmable Shapes form the future of pasta everywhere

In the boiling pot of the future, pastas never ending shapes won't come pre-formed, they will shape themselves. Yes that’s right, your pasta will be programmable.

Using technology developed from polymers, researchers found that scouring pasta in certain ways will make it then curl into the traditional shapes we love – and the abstract ones we only could dream of.

The sky's the limit as scientists plan to use computer models to automate the technique. Don't be fooled that this is just for fun, transporting shaped pastas takes a lot more packaging and shipping logistics than traditional pastas like angel hair. Even with developmental challenges I foresee this on the shelves and in fancy restaurants real soon.

In that case I will order for everyone! Let's have the Pasta Fusilli Programmabile grazie.

And for a little fun check out the image below. Thanks for reading!
