Ryan says, “We’ve come up with some pretty entertaining ways to give it to each other, including freezing it in a block of ice and putting it into a block of Jell-O.

Iowa State University announced it will be using its giant 3D printer to print out affordable homes for a rural town. The university said the College of Design’s 3D Affordable Innovative Technologies Housing Project, will build an entire neighborhood in Hamburg, Iowa. The school said its giant 3D printer features a huge nozzle that dispenses concrete, which makes it possible to build an entire home in a matter of days.

You when they get wind of this, you just know that one of the Kardashians will gold plate their tongue.
