Introducing the 3Doodler: A Pen That Can Draw In The Air!

It's a pen that can draw in the air! 3Doodler is the 3D printing pen you can hold in your hand. Lift your imagination off the page!

Have you ever just wished you could lift your pen off the paper and see your drawing become a real three dimensional object? Well now you can!

3Doodler is the world’s first and only 3D Printing Pen. Using ABS plastic (the material used by many 3D printers), 3Doodler draws in the air or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use, and requires no software or computers. You just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.
Oh, and it’s also the most affordable way to 3D print…by a looong way! With 3Doodler we’re making fun 3D creation accessible to everyone.

How does it work?

If you can scribble, trace or wave a finger in the air you can use a 3Doodler.
As 3Doodler draws, it extrudes heated plastic, which quickly cools and solidifies into a strong stable structure. This allows you to build an infinite variety of shapes and items with ease! Most people will instantly be able to trace objects on paper, and after only a few hours of practice you will be able to make far more intricate objects.

3Doodler is a brand new way of creating objects and artistic works. Whether you are an artist, hobbyist or 3D printing fanatic, we can’t wait to see what you 3Doodle!

What can I make with 3Doodler?

There are many ways 3Doodler can be used. 3Doodles can be created as flat forms and peeled off a piece of paper, as freestyle 3D objects, or in separate parts, ready to be joined together using the 3Doodler. The creative opportunities are endless, including:
  • Basic 3D shapes and 3D models
  • Jewelry, pendants and hanging ornaments
  • Decorative art and fridge magnets
  • Personalization of everyday objects (iPhone cases, laptops, pens, etc.)
  • A mini Eiffel Tower or a soccer pitch for your Lego men
  • And much much more…
Get yours here.

This particular model is a little rough but the retail version will be much sharper.

The End of Saturday Morning Mail

After wasting $16 billion US last year, the postmaster general announced that the US Postal Service will halt Saturday delivery of first-class mail. That means most mailers, packages, letters and catalogs would not arrive on Saturdays, ending a 150-year tradition.

What are your thoughts on USPS' decision?

Exquisite Illustrations: The Perfect Definition of this Digital Life

While I agree that we need to regulate ourselves and set boundaries to avoid being consumed by the technology, I don't think it is a fundamentally new problem. Society always has to adapt and create norms by which all members must abide in order to function. Today we struggle to create those norms for smartphone and tablet use, but past societies have had to do the same for other social advancements.

When the telephone was invented, suddenly we are able to contact each other instantly and remotely. Whereas in the past, you would write someone a letter or visit them, now you can simply call. When is it appropriate to call? Can I call at dinner time? Should I expect you to be available to talk? Is it rude to tell someone certain news (deaths, etc) over the phone versus in person or in a letter? Over time society answered those questions.

You could use similar examples for things like the automobile (how fast is too fast? Should I let that person on my right have the right-of-way?), which when it was invented was more or less unregulated as far as how it was built and used. Or, clothes, for that matter - which, I suppose, were more or less optional at some distant point in our history.

I'm rambling a bit but the main point I'm trying to make is that yes, we have some work to do as a society to integrate universal communications as we have them into our lives effectively. We have a responsibility to agree upon a set of rules and to teach those to our children. It is just one more thing we need to pass along to our kin in order to make them productive members of society, similar to teaching them to drive or to dress themselves.

Startup Seeo Creates Safer Next-Gen Lithium Battery

The unnerving capability of lithium ion batteries to catch on fire emerged as headline news last month, as Boeing was forced to ground its futuristic 787 Dreamliner FLEET after two batteries caught on fire. But the next generation of lithium ion batteries are promising to be safer, and a few of them are already starting to be used in real-world situations in the power grid, electric vehicles and gadgets.

Six-year-old startup Seeo — which is backed by Vinod Khosla, Google Ventures and others — has installed its first battery system to act as energy storage in conjunction with a solar panel system developed by SunEdison, according to Seeo CEO Hal Zarem, who I interviewed last week. The solar battery installation is a trial for now, but a sizable one: on the level of kilowatts and tens of kilowatts, explained Zarem. For comparison’s sake, the Nissan LEAF uses a 24 kilowatt hour battery, while an average cell phone will use 2,000 to 3,000 milliamp hour batteries (far smaller than a kilowatt hour of capacity).

Batteries, like the one Seeo has installed for SunEdison’s solar system, can act as storage for the energy produced by solar panels, so that when the sun goes down (or behind a cloud) the battery can then offer up the stored power. Utilities, building owners and even home owners are starting to see the benefits of having battery storage systems connected to solar systems, because power can be far more smooth and reliable. Likewise solar installer SolarCity has been working with Tesla’s batteries to sell a home battery system with its solar panels in certain markets.

CES Drops CNET As Awards Partner, Gives Dish Hopper "Best of CES" Award

courtesy of Dish
CES today issued a press release announcing that DISH’s Hopper with Sling technology built-in is the “Best of Show” after all, an honor it will share with existing winner the Razer Edge for the 2013 show. The decision follows the revelation that CNET was ordered to remove the Hopper from consideration after CNET parent company CBS asked them to. CBS is currently involved in litigation with DISH over Hopper functionality.

Along with the granting of the award, CES also announced that it will launch an RFP seeking a new partner for the “Best of CES” awards “soon”, since it isn’t confident that relationship with CNET will continue to be beneficial for the CES brand.

“CES has enjoyed a long and productive partnership with CNET and the Best of CES awards,” CEA SVP of Events and Conferences Karen Chupka said in the release. “However, we are concerned the new review policy will have a negative impact on our brand should we continue the awards relationship as currently constructed. We look forward to receiving new ideas to recognize the ‘best of the best’ products introduced at the International CES.”

The DISH Hopper with Sling can record and play back programming within a 24 hour window after its airing, without commercials, which is the source of CBS’s legal dispute with DISH. CEA joined up with other tech organizations last week to file a brief in support of DISH around the Hopper, as the company is clearly eager to distance itself from the editorial decision made by CNET and its parent company, which came under fire from other media organizations (ours included) and tech industry watchers alike.

courtesy of CES
CEA came out in strong support of the DISH Hopper in a statement from Gary Shapiro included in the release:
We are shocked that the ‘Tiffany’ network which is known for its high journalistic standards would bar all its reporters from favorably describing classes of technology the network does not like. We believe that the DISH Hopper DVR is fully covered by the Supreme Court’s ruling in Sony Corp. of America v. Universal City Studios Inc. The simple fact is making television easier to watch is not against the law. It is simply pro-innovation and pro-consumer.

The fallout for CNET has already resulted in the departure of Greg Sandoval from the network, who resigned his post, citing a loss of confidence in CBS’s commitment to editorial independence as his reason for leaving.
