3D PRINTED CHRISTMAS COOKIES from Ralf Holleis on Vimeo.

With 3D printing the possibilities seem endless. We’ve already seen 3D-guns, 3D-dildos, and a slew of 3D-printed statuettes. But today, because everyone is getting into the holiday spirit, we bring you 3D-holiday-cookies.

That’s right, those delicious sugar cookies don’t need to be rolled out into bland shapes like snowmen and reindeer. Who wants to mess around with all that flouring and rolling out and cutting? Ralf Holleis’ 3D printer will take the dough in its material dispenser and create intricate cookie-patterns to be baked up into beautiful wreath and star shapes. You could probably program it to make a cookie that looks like your Great Aunt Edna or your house.

Unfortunately, the 3D printer doesn’t then turn into an oven, but you’ll still likely be the hit of your local cookie swap.

It otherwise shows that 3D printing is jumping into a bunch of new industries, creating some really cool products. Take the gaming industry, for example. A 3D printer recently created the “X-Cube” — probably the world’s hardest Rubik’s cube.

Check out the video and prepare to get hungry.
