As you can see in both the picture and the description below, ice sculpting just became as easy as flicking a switch. When will the madness end?
Currently, the practical applications of this project include commercial and industrial part modelling, and construction for the ice-tourism industry. For instance, small-scale ice models represent economical alternatives to intricate 3D models of architectural objects, be they scale models of buildings, site models, or building details.
Eventually, the designers hope to create large, habitable buildings and other structures (like the well-known Ice Hotel, perhaps).
