A big robot squeezes molten plastic like it's icing a cake, but it's actually 3D printing furniture. Named Galatéa, the robot is the centerpiece of the Kickstarter for Drawn, where it will travel to you and print your reward on the spot.

The French project, which is already fully funded, produces coil pot-like furniture. The campaign was actually meant to fund the design team's attendance at two design shows, the ID d'art trade show and the Maison et Objet, but we think Galatéa takes the cake.
