Vegetables 3D

July 28, 2009

The vegetable 3D  are organic products such as a bowl, a vase, plates, made from a variety of 100% dried vegetables and fruits. All the materials are fully eatable, 100% biological disposable and tasty.

It is recommended for use indoors. When the material is in a high-humidity environment, the material becomes weaker and more flexible. In a constant high-humid environment, or when the material gets wet, the material will perish thus not suitable for places like Singapore.

I can imagine it being used for picnics and home buffets, less waste, more food.

BlackHoney Fruit Bowl

August 22, 2007


Manufactured and distributed by Materialise, this bowl is made of epoxy resin using stereolithographic 3-D printing. “The final form is a contrast between hard and soft,” says Levy, who made the honeycomb pattern slightly irregular to give the sensation of a living biological material. “If you put an orange in the bowl, you have the feeling the bowl is going to eat it.”

Metrokane L-Press Juicer

July 21, 2007


New Shape Of The Citrus Juicer. This Metrokane L-Press is the first new design for such a device in 10 years, and this one has a rack-and-pinion gearing, just like the steering on the finest sports cars. So get this, that means you can press down with 1,000 pounds of leverage using this sucker. So much metal, so little use…
