Nowadays, it seems that 3D printers can just print everything – from medical supplies to various toys. And, it doesn’t stop there. In fact, it’s about to become even stranger.
With the new innovation called printGreen, we can now print a growing garden into a variety of shapes you desire. This printer was developed by the University of Maribor in Slovenia.

Modified by CNC printer, this green printer can shoot out a damp, clay-like soil filled with small seeds. Eventually, the seeds will grow into grass.
PrintGreen was built and designed by a group of Intermedia Arts program students of the University of Maribor. They all share the same goal of combining nature and art into one technology. Although a printed garden seems like an odd idea, it may still be used in the near future, especially when producing more efficient food in a small and environment-friendly space.
Using the printer, you can create all sorts of shape you want and watch the plants grow in time.
PrintGreen has now been used to create living signs, displays, and artwork.
The flower pot-like structures that are created can also be filled with more plants and soil.
