Here’s an interesting use of 3D printing technology by the North Drinkware company who have designed a pint glass that contains a mountain in the bottom.
The Oregon Pint Glass features Mount Hood - Oregon’s highest peak - and has generated a lot of interest online with a Kickstarter project that has generated funds way over the initial target in just one day of launching.

Anyone wanting to get their hands on one of the impressive looking glasses can get an early bird order through the company’s Kickstarter page.
