    3D-Printed Edible Morsel

    Array
    Gear  |  Projects
    Edible Growth is an ongoing project by Eindhoven-based food designer Chloé Rutzerveld that has created a 3D-printed edible morsel using a combination of technical and natural processes. The morsel is grown inside a 3D-printed edible structure, with plants and fungi sprouting out after about five days. Once printed, it takes a few days for the seeds and mushrooms to germinate after which they start to poke out of the small holes on top. All that’s left to do is pop it in your mouth. Rutzerveld’s design is currently just a concept and would involve several years of research, namely around 3d printing technology and issues of food safety.

    Array
    Gear  |  Projects
    "Hidden under a cap on the bottom of the umbrella's handle is where you'll find the actual Bluetooth electronics and a replaceable watch battery that should keep it running for about a year or two, depending on how often you need to carry an umbrella. It's designed to maintain a constant wireless connection to a smartphone with a range of about 30 feet, and when that connection disappears, users will get an alert on their phones reminding them they may have forgotten it behind. It's a simple but effective way to make it easier to justify spending a few more bucks on a nice umbrella."

    Gear  |  Projects
    Bookniture is a coffee table book that folds out to make a coffee table. Just a flip, you will open a table(seat). Using a combination of traditional book-binding techniques and a paper honeycomb structure, the Bookniture can actually support up to 375 pounds so it can be used as a portable stool. But at 13-inches tall it's still compact enough to fit inside most shoulder bags designed to accommodate a laptop. And if you bring along multiple copies you'll be able to build yourself a complete portable office suite since the Bookniture can be stacked to create everything from tables, to desks, to seating. The project has already reached its Kickstarter goal, so if you contribute $60 or more, you’re guaranteed to receive one for your very own.
