1 – Ultimaker & Farmshelf

This video outlines how Farmshelf are growing plants far quicker than they normally grow. They do this through feeding them exactly what they need, whenever they want. 3D printing was used to design the parts for holding the plants, allowing Farmshelf to create perfectly fitting parts for maximum plant growth. Ultimaker 3D printers were used for this process.

2 – Solar Powered Glass 3D Printers

This 3D printer uses the suns rays to heat sand to its melting point, thus creating glass. Since the 3D printer is being used in a desert where sand is plentiful, this 3D printer is using an almost unlimited resource to 3D print glass structures. This could potentially revolutionise glass production.

3 – 3D Printed Flip Flops

These innovative new 3D printed flip flops were inspired by Amazonian Indians and changes according to your feet. The ‘Iguaneye’ assembles together from two parts, and includes a micronet to take different shapes. In addition, the shoes are made from special cork which absorbs sweat and prevents body odors.

4 – MakeX 3D Printing Backpack

MakeX’s 3D printing backpack, the Migo, is an innovative new option for 3D printing. Due to being able to be transported as a backpack, you can take this 3D printer out with you, and have it keep running whilst you go about your day. This 3D printer recently hit its Kickstarter target and will move into production soon.

5 – EasyKu

EasyKu have developed an innovative 3D printed device which you attach to a ukelele to make it easier to play. The EasyKu device uses buttons to play chords, making playing famous songs such as Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” far easier. It has several levels based on your skill level to practice harder chords.
