Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. 3Doodler is the name of a company that has had success creating a pen based 3D printer… And the company’s latest device…3D Build and Play …is designed to be safe for kids as young as 4…and will be priced at just 30 dollars. Co-founder Max Bogue says the idea here is to unleash creativity…and ease of use…
“We created these molds that have holes in them and it’s almost like an injection molding system that the kids can then use to fill in the molds and then put pieces together. So we moved to a hand crank device that they could have more control in a sense. And we developed it in a way that let us switch the handle that’s good for lefties and righties.”
And the materials for creating are actually food grade safe. 3D Build and Play is scheduled to arrive this spring or early summer.
