Shoe Burger Bun: Amsterdam-based 3D artist, Tristan Bethe has made the impossible: an edible sneaker. Bethe scanned his shoe and had it 3D-printed. He next painted food-safe silicone rubber onto the 3D print of the sneaker. Once dry, the silicone came of the print easily and he just added a few supportive threads to help it keep its shape.
