FormBox is a new project created by Mayku, a new hardware startup founded by a pair of London-based design entrepreneurs: “With the FormBox, create simple forms from everyday items such as potatoes and plasticine, or create more complex creations using other maker machines like 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC machines. The FormBox will come with everything you need to get you making projects as soon as it arrives at your door. Just add your vacuum cleaner.”

Here’s how it works:

  1. Place your selected material into the FormBox.
  2. Find the shape or template you want to make a mold of and put it directly on the bed of the FormBox.
  3. Turn on the machine’s heater, and once it’s warmed up, pull the heated materials over your shape for the mold.
  4. Turn the vacuum on—and the mold is created before your eyes.

From concrete plant pots to customised chocolates, the FormBox has a whole host of different applications. Look at the video:
