Something mind-numbingly cool has just dropped on Kickstarter. The 3Doodler is a pen that lets you draw three dimensional objects with spools of ABS plastic. Essentially it’s a primitive 3D printer-in-a-pen you can use to make whatever three dimensional object you can draw. Even more insane, using “stencils” of objects you can download and print out with a regular printer as a guide you can make really neat stuff like the Eiffel Tower pictured on the right.
The awesomeness of this idea hasn’t gone unnoticed: after only two days on Kickstarter nearly a million dollars has been pledged, far exceeding their modest goal of $30k. The actual pen is going for a reward of just $75, and rewards are running out quick. Don’t miss out!
