A 3D-Printer That Lets You Print A Real Living Garden

A team of students at the University of Maribor in Slovenia has developed a 3D-printer that can print objects "out of living grass".

Tiskaj ZELENO’, which means Print GREEN, combines art, nature and technology in one device. It prints using a mixture of soil, water and grass seeds, and the printed designs are capable of sprouting and turning green over time.

View some photos below and learn more about the printer here.
