Drink Coffee Out of a 3D-Printed Coffee Cup Made of Coffee

Because you can.

Take your coffee game to the next level. Or, at least, to another level: A company called Wound-Up has created a bio-based 3D printing material made from "waste byproducts" from coffee. The brown-colored filament can be used in many different types of 3D printers, and can print anything, but we're thinking coffee cups are the most obvious choice here. Once printed, the plastic-looking cups can hold the product they're made from: Coffee. Coupled with The Ripple Maker — which prints photographic-like portraits onto milk foam — you could make the most high tech latte currently known to man.
