Solar Sinter


This is really amazing. A 3D-printing machine that uses sunlight and sand to make glass objects in the desert! Made by London based designer Markus Kayser. Imagine how many possibilities this machine can offer.
“In the deserts of the world two elements dominate – sun and sand. The former offers a vast energy source of huge potential, the latter an almost unlimited supply of silica in the form of quartz. The experience of working in the desert with the Sun-Cutter led me directly to the idea of a new machine that could bring together these two elements. Silicia sand when heated to melting point and allowed to cool solidifies as glass.”
