There’s been some recent innovation in printers and some prototype 3D printers have come out, nothing over impressive and most take forever to create anything worth mentioning, but this… this is cool.
Currently a Kickstarter project, the 3Doodler is a pen that extrudes plastic that instantly hardens, creating a 3d sculpture of whatever you draw. You can draw on a surface and peel off a 2D object of literally draw in the air. Even though they’ve already reached way more than their goal, you can still preorder one pen with a bag of plastic for 75 bucks.
If anyone is wondering what to get me for St. Patrick’s Day, I would like a 3Doodler. In return I promise to draw you something really inappropriate and naturally 3 dimensional as a symbol of my gratitude. In all seriousness though, I’ll probably be buying one of these. Just to whip out and show people how I can sign cheques in 3D. Watch the video about the pen below.
You can support the Kickstarter project here. They have already WAY surpassed their goal.
