You scream, I scream, we all transform an off-the-shelf Cuisinart soft-serve maker to extrude super-cooled and 3D-printed shells of ice cream! Three students at MIT, Kyle Hounsell, Kristine Bunker, and David Donghyun Kim, have created a homemade ice cream printer that extrudes soft serve and immediately freezes it so that it can be layered on a cooled plate.

Not only that, the engineering prodigy from Sierra Leone once built a battery out of scrap metal, baking soda and acid to power his family's house. Yep, he is a kludge god in the purest sense of the term. Uproxx called him a teenage Tony Stark, and we'd be inclined to agree. I'd also like to add this request:

Get. This. Kid. A. Scholarship. MIT, Cal-Tech, Harvey Mudd, Olin, anywhere. Step up!

Next in the line of "welcome to the future" products, we have the needleless drug injector developed by researchers at MIT. It uses pressure and force so localized that it's able to deliver medication at precise locations no wider than the proboscis of a mosquito. And you won't even get an itchy bump afterward (I hope).
