During the last years, numerous innovative technological cools have come into our lives. Starting from the most recent smartphone models, which allow us to work, talk and take pictures basically thanks to the same device, there are plenty of innovative options out there to make your life easier. 3d printers are one of those latest innovations that could help you out with numerous tasks and projects. Numerous designers and architects around the world have used this tool to successfully implement their ultimate dreams. Let's give a look at some of the coolest 3d projects from around the world.

     1. 3D printed car

You might be surprised to read about this one, but in 2014, the first vehicle printed out thanks to 3d printing tools, came out. It literally blew everyones mind. Although the process took some time (but not as much as you can imagine), this was basically considered as one of the breakthroughs in the car industry. The car was 3d printed in about 44 hours and it looks like other plans to print out similar cars are on the way.

      2. 3D printed Van Gogh ear

If you've never been to a Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam or you are not into Van Gogh's art, you might still know that Van Gogh cut off his ear at a certain point of his life. Well, apparently, a contemporary artist teamed up with some scientists to 3d print Van Gogh's ear!

     4. 3D printed organs 

One of the latest innovations introduced in medicine, is 3d printing. Prominent researchers from around the world have already used 3d printers to print out 3d human organs, including ears or kidneys, and other types of humans tissues. Although, we are still at the early stages and further tests are needed, in the next future, 3d printed organs and tissues may be used for transplantation, considering the lack of suitable organs for many of those in need on trasplant. 

     5. 3D printed office building
