The BMW i3 City Car is BMW's latest stab at sustainable design. The i3 is power by eDrive technology and generates zero emissions. On one charge you'll get about 100 miles to the gallon. It will take about 30 minutes to fill her up (80%). You'll get about 170 HP out of i3, which is enough to tool around town. The interior will consist of European Eucalyptus wood. For the interior leather surfaces, the tanning solution is derived from olive leaves. All of the materials in the car are not only environmentally friendly but offer amazing durability.

Dad, are my sneakers ready yet? This may be something you regularly hear in the future, because right now the 3D-Printed Sneakers By Recreus ($TBA) are available to print. You can 3D print you next pair of kicks thanks to a flexible filament offered by the company. Recreus believes their 1.75 mm filament is the most flexible on the market. Because flexible filaments can be extremely tricky and can cause your 3D printer to clog, Recreus has also released their own extruder and hot end ($30). The files for printing the Sneakerbot II sneakers can be found on Thingiverse.
