3D printing finds its way in pretty much every field. Construction, medicine, fashion,… there aren’t much places where 3D printing didn’t bring innovation. Now a team of students at the University of Maribor in Slovenia found a way to print an earthly mixture that you can grow grass on.

The printer is named PrintGreen. It allows you to create shapes with the mixture of soil, water, and seeds, and play with it. The technology is of course limited, due to the material used, but you can even print elevated prints to build bowls and things like that.
