SOMERVILLE, MA – Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, if you’re a fan of doodling, art, technology or cool stuff, then you’ll want to feast your eyes on the 3-Doodler.

Soon, those goofy drawings of yours will be able to jump right off the page, thanks to two very clever inventors.

“The 3-Doodler is the world’s first 3D printing pen, which allows you to draw objects in 3-dimensions, which sounds crazy but it’s fun and it’s relatively easy to do,” said co-creator Maxwell Bogue.

“This is a pen that actually draws the object not just a picture of the object,” said co-creator Peter Dilworth.

The pen is able to melt plastic that cools instantly into whatever shape you can dream up.

“It’s a new way to communicate. It’s effectively a way for people to communicate 3D ideas directly to each other,” said Bogue.

In order to help get the 3-Doodler into the hands of doodlers everywhere, the creators turned to the fundraising website Kickstarter.

They had hoped to make $30,000.

They made $2 million!

“The fact that there is no software and the low price, it really opens it up for everyone to experience this and start thinking about the world in a different way,” said Bogue.

The 3-Doodler will cost around $100, and it could be in stores as early as next Christmas.

Here’s to taking doodling to a whole new dimension!
