A new Kickstarter campaign from WobbleWorks has taken the core idea of modern 3-D printing tech and applied it to an old-world tool: The pen. The 3Doodler device is essentially the plastic printing head from a 3-D printer in a handheld form, and thus allows much more free-form “printing.” Because it spreads quick-setting ABS or PLA plastic, the pen can be used to draw or trace an object, and even stack up layers much as a proper 3-D printer could into a more tangible object.
