Your eyes are not deceiving you: The Silk Pavillion — an architectural experiment constructed at MIT, was “3-D printed” using 6,500 live silkworms.

Humans have been breeding silkworms for fabric for over 5,000 years, but Media Lab professor Neri Oxman married their innate productivity with computerized efficiency.
