We all know that traditional 3D printers print in plastic mediums, but the folks at MIT have developed a glass 3D printer. The G3DP project was created in collaboration between the Mediated Matter group at the MIT Media Lab, the Mechanical Engineering Department, the MIT Glass Lab and Wyss Institute. Researchers include John Klein, Michael Stern, Markus Kayser, Chikara Inamura, Giorgia Franchin, Shreya Dave, James Weaver, Peter Houk and Prof. Neri Oxman. Using this 3D print technology, they have created stunning glass works and designs that are as beautiful as they are practical. Watch the video and see for yourself.
