3D printers can be used for so much these days, but what about creating new pasta shapes? This is something pasta maker Barilla is using to find out a new pasta design, which is unique if you ask me.

The company held a competition recently, where they revealed three winners who created new shapes using a 3D printer. One of the winners, Rosa, blooms into a full rose when it is put in boiling water. Two other designs include a conical vortex shape and a circular moon, with the moon featuring craters to "improve the interaction between pasta and sauces."

Barilla has said that it might starting working with leading design using 3D printers going into the future, coming off the back of the company announcing plans to look into restaurant-grade printers that would be capable of made-to-order custom shapes. An interesting road for pasta, that's for sure.
