3D-printing pen passes its Kickstarter goal in just hours

3D printing pen reaches Kickstarter goals, get ready for the 3Doodler

I can't state it enough times, but it looks like 3D printers are really the next big thing with the 3Doodler. The 3Doodler is a pen-style device that the creators are dubbing a "world's first", as well as "the most affordable way to 3D print."

The 3Doodler is quite magical, as it allows the user to draw designs into existence by simply moving it through the air - incredible. The 3Doodler uses ABS plastic that is heated, and then instantly cooled. The developers, WobbleWorks, took to Kickstarter yesterday, breaking their $30,000 funding goal in just a few hours. The first orders of the 3Doodler should arrive later in the year, hopefully September, and we should be looking at just 5,000 of the Kickstarter-backed orders being shipped at first.

 

From their $30,000 goal they've passed it with flying colors - where at the time of writing, they had $344,096 pledged - over ten times their goal. If you want to buy one, you can order one now for $75 and you should receive it in October.
