NAME: 3D-printed Sugar

AUTHOR: LA-based design studio The Sugar Lab.

DESCRIPTION: Liz and Kyle von Hasseln, the husband-and-wife team behind The Sugar Lab, wanted to make a cake for a friend’s birthday. Since they had no oven in their tiny apartment, they used the next best thing available: a 3D printer. After many trials, they managed to create a cupcake topper in sugar that said their friend’s name. The Sugar Lab was born. The duo has been experimenting ever since. They perfected their recipe to achieve complex geometric structures that fully exploit the sculptural possibilities offered by the 3D printer. The Sugar Lab now creates custom cake stands and ornaments.

AMUSEMENT RATE: Many people are currently experimenting with 3D printed food, but none of them chose an approach as artistic as The Sugar Lab. Their incredible designs make it hard to suspect that these fragile yet intricate sculptures are actually edible. Since they are only made out of sugar and of a water and alcohol solution, the 3D printed sculptures might not be the most succulent treat but they will give you a great sugar rush.

Gigantic net suspended in the air becomes a crowd-controlled sculpture powered by Google Chrome

By AMUSEMENT

[DIGITALLY-INSPIRED] Spanning 745 feet between buildings of downtown Vancouver, this monumental interactive sculpture was built for TED's 30th anniversary. At night, the net made of a fiber 15 times stronger than steel comes to live as projectors illuminate the structure. Visitors are then able to interact with the sculpture to transform it into a massive crowd-controlled artwork.
