Brooklyn studio uses music to make beautiful, playable 3D printed sculptures

April 10, 2015

For a while there we were pretty obsessed with 3D printing. We wrote about an artist who used sound to 3D print chairs, which were weird and, at first glance, seemingly horrible to sit on. We’ve written about 3D printed records, 3D printed guitar pickups and 3D printed Daft Punk helmets. But today we’re writing about something a little more abstract.

Similar to the chair story, Brooklyn studio REIFY is using music to 3D print intricate, and frankly beautiful sculptures. Even crazier, they’ve made an app that can read the sculptures and sing them back to you.
