CreoPop have created the world’s first 3D pen that’s both simple and safe for even children to use thanks to its use of light-sensitive photopolymers. Imagine being able to fuel your child’s inner creativity without having to worry about toxic fumes or getting their hands burned by melting plastic. The LED lights built into the pen are harmless and similar in strength to regular sunlight. All you have to do is press the button and create any shapes you like.
The wide selection of coloured and types of inks available to use with CreoPop means creativity, through 3D printing, is not limited to one colour or texture. The selection of cool inks available includes elastic ink, magnetic ink, glow-in-the-dark ink, temperature sensitive ink and body paint ink. Kids can create their own 3D coloured rainbows, jewellery designers can bring their ideas to life, an artist could even create a 3D portrait or you could even create your own 3D tattoo with the body paint ink. Each ink cartridge can print a 14 meter (46 feet) line at 3mm (0,12 inches) diameter, so you needn’t worry about running out of ink so quickly.
CreoPop is charged using USB, so it can be used anywhere in the world as long as the user has access to USB charging through a computer or adapter. Once the pen is charged you won’t have to worry about working with tangled wires as this 3D pen is cordless.
Currently at the moment CreoPop is able to ship to most locations around the world. The first shipment of these pens is expected in April 2015. You can order directly from their website by pressing the pre-order button. Or you can visit their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
