129. Candy/Toys

Among the poorer residents of the system, who live in biological bodies but cannot afford the cleverly engineered foods of the elite, never-mind any derived from grown crops or animals food, is organic matter printed by makers. Often, this means gruels and nutritious food bars, perfectly healthy and either bland or with unsubtle flavoring. There are a number of small autonomist projects designed to win inner-system support through better food.

Candy/Toys are an open source project designing combinations of toys and candy that can be made by almost any maker. The maker prints small mechanical parts out of sugar, which can be eaten or built into simple toys, robots, and buildings. The toys are designed to encourage creativity among children who use them, and educate them in skills related to robotics and mechanics.
