Art student Markus Kayser has created an ingenious project designed to address energy concerns.  Called Solar Sinter, desert sunlight and sand are used as sources of raw energy to produce glass objects.  Thanks to a 3D printing process that combines solar energy with the abundance of sand.  According to his website, Solar Sinter should be seen as “a point of departure for fresh thinking” about renewable sources of energy.  Brilliant!
