MIT Figured Out How to 3D Print Glass and It's Stunning

You should really just watch the video.

The smart people at MIT figured out how to 3D print glass, and the world is a more beautiful place.

Many researchers and departments collaborated on this project, including MIT’s Glass Lab. Students have to enter a competitive lottery to get into the lab, and there’s no school credit for participating. From this video about class, it appears to be basically a glass-blowing class, but nerdier:

If that’s not a reason for smart and artsy high school kids to consider MIT, I don’t know what is.

As far as we know, the first 3D printed glass bong is a technological milestone for another day. Until then, artsy college kids, stay tuned.
