Clothing Printer Concept for 2050 Allows You to Produce Your Own Clothes from Home

In the future, somewhere in 2050, Joshua Harris has envisioned that we can print our own clothes using Clothing Printer. This project aims to create solution that people have to deal in rapid population which can dramatically change the way we live in the future. This concept printer offers you effortlessly home-based clothing production, thus, eliminating the need for closets, washing machines and dryers, which is good due to the lack of space in crowded urban environment.

Based on his research, the designer found that our clothing industry to be an extremely wasteful and inefficient use of our resources. As you probably know, clothing is shipped to several different places before distributed to the consumers. Clothes only have short lifespan like maybe a few years, they’ll end up either being disposed or re-purposed. So, how bout creating a device which can print our clothes from home? Clothing printer concept definitely would increase marketability.

can this website stop posting stuff that is even less than a concept!

Sorry Keiva, but this is clearly a concept. And an interesting one too. It is blue sky, but might come in one or the other form pretty soon. Not sure if every household needs one, but maybe local outlet points.
Designers should think ahead and outline the potential of new technologies and social trends (rather than showing hundredths Tokyo flash watch variation) . Maybe you got the definition of 'concept' wrong. Concept comes before production model, at least in my understanding.

This could very well be possible through a technology called laser sintering, using a 3D printer to print interwoven components to form a fabric-like pattern. It would sure beat going to a store to buy clothes! Just shop at home, submit a virtual scan of your body for accurate measurements, then have the 3D printer print out "tailor-made" clothing for you.

As long as the material is recyclable and biodegradable, no need for a washer or dryer, and you'll always have bright, fresh clothing.

the only issue is if you want high-quality natural fabrics like cotton or silk. But for synthetic fabrics, this would be ideal.

I already HAVE one of these – it’s called a “sewing machine”! Cool name, huh! This concept will run into the same problems we have trying to teach instant-gratification youngsters to sew – they have to choose a design and choose a fabric best suited to the design. If you don’t know what you’re doing you’ll make a mess unless you commit to learning the process of design, fitting, and garment construction.
