My latest blog contribution for Ohh Deer enters technophile territory. London-based designers LIX launch the smallest 3D Printing Pen on the market that enables users to doodle in thin air. Powered simply via USB port, the LIX 3D Printing Pen uses plastic filament, similar to 3D printers, to draw and construct immediate freestanding structures by hand without the need for paper.
Exploring our relationship between craft and applied science, I look at the type of audience LIX chose to target for its Kickstarter campaign as well as whether this creative gadget is a perfectionist's nightmare.
Discover a new style of draftsmanship for the future in my full review now available at Ohh Deer.
