Air Artistry

If you want to draw on the air, first of all, you still have that child-like sense of wonder and imagination and we’re jealous. Second, you can do it now, so you win.


Think of it as a handheld 3D printer. The 3Doodler uses the same ABS plastic you’d find in a normal professional 3D printer, and puts it into a handheld device. It takes very little skill to use and all you need to do is plug it in and go. As you draw with it, the implement extrudes heated plastic, which almost immediately cools, creating a hardened structure. Not only can you draw freehand in midair, you can also use stencils to trace out patterns and peel them off to create flat pieces, which can either be standalone or used together to create 3D sculptures.


One of the most popular gadgets of the year, the Kickstarter campaign has raised $2,344,134 of their original $30,000 goal, so they’re doing pretty well. For a pledge of $75, you can receive a doodler in February of 2014, along with supplies. Based on the reaction this above GIF got in the office, we at Canopy loved it and will be buying, like, six of them.
