If Hoyoung Lee’s concept printer becomes reality, you’ll never throw away another pencil stub or buy another ink cartridge. The pencil printer separates the wood from pencils and uses the lead to print documents. There’s even a built-in eraser component that allows you to remove text from a page and reuse the paper, so you’ll be saving money and trees.

Hungry? Soon you may be able to print out your dinnerScientists at Cornell are developing a 3-D printer that can print meals using raw food “ink.” Using raw-food inks set up in syringes, a specialized printer creates cookies, pie and other treats. The food list is currently limited to ingredients that can be extracted from a syringe, and researchers have had success with chocolate, cake and cookies. But they think the machine could be developed to create customized menus for “fussy” customers — or that the world’s great chefs could share their patented recipes for download.
