American toy and robotics company WobbleWorks have developed a brilliant project called the ‘3Doodler’ – the world’s first 3D modelling pen.
The pen works by extruding heated plastic(ABS plastic), the device creates drawings in the air or on surfaces, requiring no software or computers.
The material quickly cools and solidifies into a strong stable structure. Objects can also be created as flat forms and peeled off a piece of paper as freestyle three-dimensional shapes, as well as in separate parts, ready to be joined together using the pen.
WobbleWorks suggest it could be used to make 3D models, jewellery and ornaments as well as to personalise objects like phone cases.
Currently on kickstarter, the 3Doodler pen needs backupers.
