If you weren't impressed by the Origami pot that grows with your plant, you're bound to be inspired by this invention capable of producing living gardens.

Project PrintGREEN is transforming 3D printers into on-demand gardeners after it created the world's first "Green" 3D printer in 2013.

The innovation is capable of producing living prints by printing customized objects in a variety of sizes and forms.

PrintGREEN was created by students Maja Petek, Tina Zidanšek, Urška Skaza, Danica Rženi?nik and Simon Tržan, with help from their mentor Dušan Zidar, at the University of Maribor in Slovenia. The team's goal is to unite art, technology, and nature, creatively producing living designs with the help of technology.

The eco-friendly "ink" is a combination of soil, seeds, and water which can be designed to print in any shape or letter. Once the ink dries, the muddy mixture holds its form and begins to sprout grass from the organic material.
