Remember 3Doodler, the 3d pen that creates shapes out of thin air, with help of hot plastic oozing out from the tip? It was an instant hit in kickstarter and could raise $2.3 million through 26000 backers. It’s a cool idea to create your imaginations, and all you need is a creative mind and a steady hand. This project has not only caught the fancy of a lot of common folks, but has also fuelled competition from fellow entreprenuers and tech geeks. Last month, we have seen the entry of a promising 3d pen – Lix. Now, it has got another formidable opponent in the form of Creopop, a pen that uses cool ink.
Creopop is very different from its predecessors – Lix and 3Doodler. It does not use traditional method of heating the plastic filament and oozing out the melted plastic. Instead, it relies on built-in ultraviolet light to solidify the special light sensitive polymers. That means no hot parts, no melting of plastic and of course no smell, and is very safe for both adults and kids.
Creopop is battery operated and can be charged through micro USB. CreoPop is cordless and offers more freedom while you are busy with your design. The company also offers a wide range of the special inks including elastic, magnetic, glow-in-the-dark, nice smelling and body painting inks. The website even boasts of ink that changes color with temperature and ink that conduct electricity made for school science classes.
Creopor will soon be launching their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. In the meantime, if you can’t wait, you can pre-register for the campaign, at their website.
