Next to caffeine, sugar is probably the next most-ingested fuel for those attending this year's South by Southwest Interactive (SXSW), so Oreo is stepping up to fill the need in real-time. Half marketing ploy, half snack station, all-out awesome, Oreo has set-up vending machines using Twitter-styled trends to help create Oreo cookies using a 3D printer. The result are "deliciously hyper-personalized and customized snacks based on real-time data," but all we care about is the fact that these cookies actually edible, can be assembled within two minutes, and can come in a dozen varieties depending on what is trending. To top it off, visitors also claim they actually taste just like the real thing. So, after downing a 3D cookie, make sure to also head over to Cronut's new chocolate chip cookie milk shot to round out the experience.
