Swedish band the Shout Out Louds have created a limited edition version of their new single Blue Ice as a playable piece of ice.
As the first single to be released from its Optica album, the band created ten boxes, containing a plastic record-shaped mould and a bottle of water. Offered to fans and press, those who got their hands on the boxes could fill the mould and place it in a freezer. Once ready, the piece of ice could be placed on a record player, producing a copy of the single at around 30 percent of its original recorded quality. The following video demonstrates how the ice record works:

In a world increasingly concerned with questions of energy production and raw material shortages, this project explores the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material occur in abundance.
In this experiment sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce glass objects using a 3D printing process, that combines natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.
Solar-sintering aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and triggers dreams of the full utilisation of the production potential of the world’s most efficient energy resource – the sun. Whilst not providing definitive answers, this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking.
