Musician and television personality Will.i.am has hopes that traditional music merchandise is heading for a change.

He has joined up with 3D Systems, a 3D printing specialist, to experiment with the ways the technology can be used at live events.

He told the BBC's North America technology correspondent Richard Taylor that figurines based on a moment from a show could be a new form of merchandise at gigs.
