No joke but this kinda blew me and my housemates mind. Being able to pick up a pen and draw a 3D object seemed like a far fetched idea a few years ago however technology moves so quickly now days that nothing surprises me anymore. Although I don’t get surprised I still get excited by a piece of kit which is simply genus. Art director Ismail Baran and creative director Anton Suvorov have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their new invention and have almost quadrupled their original goal already. The pen which is being advertised as “the smallest 3D printing pen in the world” is not much bigger than a regular pen but allows you to draw in the air and create sculptures wherever you please. It heats up the plastic filament within 60-seconds (having been powered by USB) and cools down rapidly allowing the plastic to set. Check out the short vid explaining Lix’s capabilities when you read on. For those wanting to get their hands on a Lix then you can pre-order a pen when you pledge £82 or more to the Kickstarter.
