From body parts to car parts, applications for computerized 3D-printing are quickly moving into many new areas. This week, customized 3D-printed gummy candy became a reality for candy lovers all across America.

Initially launched in late May at the New York City flagship store of Dylan's Candy Bar, the 3D-printing machines from Katje's Magic Candy Factory are now installed at Dylan's locations from coast to coast.

Using a tablet computer connected to the printers, consumers can email an image or create a design using a number of templates available.

In addition to choosing the color and flavor of your candy, a special "finishing touch" option can add edible glitter or a sour candy coating to the final product.

In less than five minutes, the personalized gummy candy is finished.

The Katje's Magic Candy Factory machine used to create gummy treats is reported to be the only "food safe" 3D-printer in use.

The end result is a gummy candy made using "100% natural products" and is dairy-free, gluten-free and nut-free.
