Discussion: WobbleWorks, a startup company out of Boston, has created a pen that you wave in the air in order to create three-dimensional pictures. They are calling it the 3Doodler, the world’s first 3-D printing pen. The reaction to the pen on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding site, has been phenomenal–they raised $1.1 million within 48 hours. The pen works sort of like a hot glue gun because you load plastc strands into the back, then as you draw it oozes melted plast, which quickly cools and solidifies.
