3D Printer Creates iPhone Cases Out of Recyled Bottles

3d-iphone-case

You can now 3D print an iPhone case using bottles from soft drinks, water and juices. Most 3D printing is done with plastic materials, and now there is an environmentally-friendly alternative that still makes cool products such as iPhone cases, toys and even shoes.

3DSystems, who claims to be bringing “high school shop class to the 21st century,” using ekocycle cartridges made in part from recycled 20 oz plastic containers.

As told through the fruitful words of will.i.am, who’s actually chief creative officer of 3DSystems in collab with Coca-Cola, plastic bottles create hundreds of millions of tons of waste a year, so they plan to turn that waste into something productive.

The only available colors at the moment are red, white and black. Hopefully will.i.am can team up with with those guys printing Nutella too.
