Will.i.am has predicted that one day tech gurus will be able to use 3D printing to make entire human beings. The musician and entrepreneur has just founded a design company called EKOCYCLE which turns old plastic bottles and other bits of rubbish into high end designer goods.

Speaking at the launch of his new firm, Will.i.am called for “new morals, new laws and new codes” on 3D printing. “Eventually 3D printing will print people,” Will.i.am told Dezeen.

“I’m not saying I agree with it, I’m just saying what’s fact based on plausible growth in technology.” “Unfortunately that is the reality, but at the same time it pushes humanity to have to adhere to new responsibilities.”

He is chief creative officer of a 3D printing firm called 3D Designs and has just launched EKOCYCLE at a glittering event Harrods.

So far he has designed luggage, a bike and even a 3D printer made out of recycled materials. “It’s the first time green products have been designed with aspiration,” he said.
