Come September, if everything goes to plan, the world’s first 3D printing pen will go on sale for $75. The pen, called the 3Doodler, essentially allows you to lift your flat sketches off the paper — or, if you wish, to actually draw in three dimensions
Moving forward, this could be a very exciting stepping stone for inventors and hobbyists alike. While 3D printers have revolutionized rapid prototyping tool, the 3Doodler is even faster; it adds a whole new dimension (!) to back-of-the-napkin brainstorming. To begin with, I suspect it will be quite hard to create meaningful sketches with a 3Doodler, but in time — and with a whole range of usability tweaks and add-on accessories that I’m sure will follow — the 3D printing pen might become as ubiquitous as the 2D Bic ballpoint

If you took a hot glue gun that had a small diameter nozzle, it'd do the same thing. Add some color to the glue and there ya go. I know they're doing it with plastic, but it's still a glorified hot glue gun.edit on 20-2-2013 by DAVID64 because: (no reason given)

Not as amazing as I was thinking it was going to be. It kind of just reminds me of a hot glue gun with cheap plastic instead of glue.
ETA: I see David beat me to it on that same line of thinking.edit on 20-2-2013 by OkieDokie because: (no reason given)
