3D Printed Floating Foam Clouds

A 3D printer unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Well, there you have it. A 3D printer that creates three-dimensional objects out of foam (see video above). Once they’re finished, the sculptures float away into the distance like so many little puffy, foamy clouds. We’re not exactly sure what the practical applications of this device are, aside from product promotion (as appears to be the case here) and delighting small children, but we’re sure it will find a place at college Spring Break locations the world over.
