Tested.com highlighted an awesome project from students at the Hasso Plattner Institute to prototype physical objects using tubes of tape. They built an ingenious ‘gun’ that spits out precisely measured tubes of tape that can be connected and constructed into large structures. This allows very rapid prototyping of objects like furniture as they show in the video.
