The uses of 3D printers never cease to amaze us. Photographer Mathieu Stern designed his own 135mm f/1.8 lens, using a single lens element, and had it printed for him by a French 3D printing company. While the corners are a bit soft, the center is impressively sharp!

You can read more about Mathieu's design on his blog.
