How can you not be impressed with a project that promises a pen that can draw in the air? The people behind the project call it a 3D Printing Pen, but it seems much more than that. Sure it looks like wire art, but just think of the potential. Imagine if Cy Twombly had access to this device when he was alive.
As my friend Marisa Sage told me when she saw the video, “It’s kinda like a tattoo gun, a hot glue gun, and a 3d printer had an orgy and nine months later out popped the 3Doodler.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
And in case you were interested in supporting this project, you may be relieved to know that they appear to have a working prototype. And for those outside the US, don’t worry, the creators say that the 3Doodler will work just fine on 110v or 240v. The 3Doodler uses 3mm ABS or PLA plastic as its “ink” — just like a 3D printer.
