【用太阳能驱动3D打印机,将沙子变成碗】艺术家Markus Kayser在沙漠开展了自己的Solar Sinter项目,用沙子作为源材料,使用太阳能驱动的3D打印机将沙子变成了一个漂亮的玻璃碗,如此下去,整个撒哈拉不会都变成一个碗吧,请戳视频,快到我碗里来!

3D Printing With Sand Using The Power Of The Sun

“So what are you doing this weekend, Markus?”

“Oh, you know. Heading out to the desert and harnessing the power of the sun to make a 3D printer that can print objects out of sand. You?”

“… catching up on Breaking Bad.”

You know the kid in your old neighborhood that spent his spare time frying ants with a magnifying glass? This is like that — except instead of a magnifying glass, he’s using an big ol’ fresnel lens. And instead of roasting insects, he’s melting freaking sand into stuff.
Built by artist Markus Kayser, the “SolarSinter” concept isn’t too disimmilar from laser sintering printers used by operations like SpaceX to print otherwise impossible objects out of metal. A focused sun beam is a whole lot less precise than a finely-honed laser, of course — but the core concepts are the same.

I bet this guy could make a mean sand castle.
