Industrial designer Markus Kayse has created a revolutionary radical device -- enter, the Solar Sinter. This device explores the process of 3D printing by exploring the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material are in abundance but often unused.

The Solar Sinter uses sunlight and sand which are the raw materials and energy used to produce 3D glass objects through the printing process. This process uses natural energy and materials which is important in a world where both are seeing shortages. The natural power of the Sun is harnessed and its rays are used for the 3D printing.

In layman's terms, his cool device called the Solar Sinter melts sand to create awesome 3D objects and art out of sand.

The Solar Sinter was first tested in Siwa, Egypt in mid-May.
