Projected by Markus Kayser, this advanced 3D printer employs the forsakes’ literally interminable sun and sand to produce 3D objects. Nicknamed the Solar Sinter, this 3D printer applies solar panels to create sustainable energy that reins the sun’s heat rays to melt the silicon oxide in the desert’s sand and create 3D objects. While the objects might not be as accurate as a 3D laser printer, the fact that this gadget makes anything out of the sun and sand is astounding.
The Siner is able of warming levels of approximately one inch thick. The device functions the open-source software, ReplicatorG to print the 3D objects. Kayser’s device will be on display at the Royal College of Art’s graduate exhibition through July 3, 2011
