3d pen, doodle, fun. Eiffel tower, ostrichIn what I can only describe as one of the most interesting and strange re-imaginings of 3D printing technology, two guys, Pete and Max (aka Wobble Works LLC), have created the world’s first 3D pen.

Over at Kickstarter the duo describe their project, “Have you ever just wished you could lift your pen off the paper and see your drawing become a real three dimensional object? Well now you can 3Doodler is the world’s first and only 3D Printing Pen. Using ABS plastic… 3Doodler draws in the air or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use, and requires no software or computers. You just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.”

In their tow-and-one-half minute video, the two experienced toy makers show off both freeform (in the air) drawing technique and an even cooler stencil based drawing method.

Is the 3Doodler useful? Maybe, but I doubt that’s the point. This gadget just screams fun, and it’s no wonder that the 3Doodler has surpassed its $30,000 funding goal. As of this writing, the project has raised $236,246 with 33 days to go.
