Apparently, the world was ready.
Two entrepreneurs have hit the Kickstarter jackpot with their pitch to build the world’s first 3-D printing pen.
The campaign for the 3Doodler pen started that started on Feb. 19 quickly racked up more than 10,000 backers, who have so far pitched in more than $900,000. That’s a respectable start for the brainchild of Peter Dilworth and Max Bogue, the co-founders of WobbleWorks, especially when their goal was to raise $30,000 from the crowdfunding site for creative projects.
Essentially a glue gun whose metal tip can reach 518 degrees Fahrenheit to extrude molten plastic like 3-D printers, the 3Doodler is said to allow users to create shapes in three dimensions. Check out the video after the jump to see it in action.
