Watch this ‘3D pen’ that allows you to draw things in mid-air

First 3D printers — and now 3D pens? Yes, this mind-blowing concept has arrived.

Imagine drawing an actual 3D object in thin air, much in the way you would in using your finger to outline an imaginary object. That’s exactly what the LIX 3D Pen can do – draw solid lines through thin air without the need for paper.

From Kickstarter.com:

LIX 3D printing pen has the similar function as 3D printers. It melts and cools coloured plastic, letting you create rigid and freestanding structures. Lix has a hot-end nozzle that is power supplied from USB 3.0 port. The plastic filament ABS/PLA is introduced in the upper extremity of Lix Pen. The filament goes through a patented mechanism while moving through the pen to finally reach the hot-end nozzle which melts and cools it down. An interesting fact about this light-weight, engineered pen is that these structures can be formed in any imaginable shape.
