Choc Edge on the Valentine’s Day One Show
Valentine’s Day 2014 was a special one for Choc Edge as we were asked to appear on the The One Show, in a segment about printing on confectionery. Dr Liang Hao, along with Choc Edge team members Adilet and Mark, headed up to the One Show studios in London to film a Choc Creator printing images of Torvill and Dean to be presented to them on the show.
With only 24 hours notice given on Thursday 13 before we had to be at the BBC everyone worked together to make sure that everything went smoothly and was ready in time for filming on the following afternoon. The chocolate printouts were successful and although Torvill and Dean only saw them on the monitors on the show there was a chance to present their portraits to them afterwards.
A time lapse video of each of the portraits being printed was shown, accompanied by a sped up version of Boléro, before Torvill and Dean saw the end result. Their reactions were positive and they seemed impressed with the technology. Although our segment was short it was a great opportunity to show off our technology to an audience of millions.
Afterwards pictures were taken with both the presenters and Torvill and Dean, and the Choc Edge team even got to sit on the One Show couch!
