3D Sketch Pen: Your future corporate gift?
Courtesy of WobbleWorks, the 3Doodler is an insane pen from the wild, right-now future that allows you to draw in the air — yep, in the air. Its creators have dubbed it “The World’s First 3D Printing Pen,” and … we believe it.
It uses plastic filament to create “wire-like artwork.” WobbleWorks has enlisted the creative minds of Etsy wire artists to show off its product. But would you know what to do with it? According to its creators Pete and Max, “If you can scribble, trace or wave a finger in the air you can use a 3Doodler.”
If it hadn’t already made so much money, we’d wonder if it were really possible. It launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 19 and by day’s end it had already raised over $500,000, greatly surpassing its $30,000 funding goal. As of today, it’s swinging well over a million and funding doesn’t end until March 25. With more than a month to go, can we expect this rate of funding to continue? Like, to the tune of $10 million? That’s a lot of doodling.
Their goal is to make 3D capabilities more accessible, which is reflected in its current sticker price of $75-$99.
Arguably, the greatest part of this product is saying “3Doodler” out loud to a coworker and then trying to explain yourself. It could be an awesome product for people in design, or people who just want to render 3D artwork of themselves to hang around the office.
