Release your inner child by 3D-printing objects with Play-Doh

Here's something that will please even the most stern-faced of readers: a 3D printer that uses Play-Doh instead of plastic to replicate objects.

Built by 3D printer manufacturer Hyrel 3D, the Emulsifiable Extruder (EMO1) can print with Play-Doh, clay, plasticine, and silicone, with more materials on the way. This printer actually started out as a ThinkGeek April Fools joke, but Hyrel 3D took on the challenge of building a 3D printer that could print with more than just ABS or PLA plastics.
