Forget food trucks, print something new on your lunch break using this mobile 3D printing kiosk. Created by Belgium design studio Unfold, the Kiosk 2.0 is attached to a foot pedalled tricycle, and could usher in a new era of bootleg street design.

The printing station project “explores a near future scenario in which digital fabricators are so ubiquitous that we see them appear on street corners.” DVICE reports that this would allow 3D objects to be scanned and printed out wherever the kiosk goes, which would allow for quick designs and custom requests, with access to a database of open-sourced 3D designs.
