World’s Smallest 3D-Printing Pen Is Coming to Kickstarter

Humans are accustomed to drawing in the air. We gesture with our hands when talking and will try to illustrate charade secrets by “drawing” objects in space. 3D-printing pens takes those gestures, makes them tangible and, in the hands of an artists, beautiful. Recent 3D-printing pens have been cool, but clunky affairs. LIX Pen, however, is something different. It’s light, small and apparently needs no more power than you can draw from your run-of-the-mill laptop. Now it’s coming to Kickstarter.

Measuring 6.45 inches long, 0.55 inch in diameter and weighing just 1.23 ounces, the aluminum 3D-printing pen (which also comes in black) really is pen sized. You hold it just like a pen, and plug a 3.5mm-like jack into the base and the other end of your cable into your computer. The juice allows LIX to heat to over 300-degrees Fahrenheit, though the plant-based PLA filament (it can also use the stronger ABS plastic) only needs to heat to 180-degrees to work. That filament is fed in through a hole in the base and emerges as a super-heated liquid on the tip so you can start doodling in the air.

Haus der Waldeulen, Wolfurt, Austria by Riegger Bär Architekten

Die Waldeulen sind ein Verein zur Förderung der Wald- und Erlebnispädagogik. Der Spielraum Wald dient dabei als ganzheitliche Wahrnehmungsförderung und Sinnesschulung sowie intensive Bewegungserfahrungen in der Natur. Märchenhafte und fantasieanregende Spielmöglichkeiten durch spielerisches Lernen von ökologischen Zusammenhängen. Um dieses Angebot durchgängig d.h. auch bei sehr schlechter Witterung anbieten zu können, ist es erforderlich den Spielraum „Wald“ durch eine Schutzhütte zu ergänzen, in welcher Kinder und Erzieher bei sehr schlechten (nassen/kalten) Witterungsbedingungen Schutz und Aufenthaltsmöglichkeit finden. Die Schutzhütte, der sog. „Waldsetzkasten“ ist als ein von aussen offenes Regal geplant. Die umlaufenden Regalflächen dienen den Kindern z.B. als Aufbewahrungsort ihrer Waldfundstücke, als Insektenhotel oder gar als Futterstelle für die Waldbewohner. Im inneren beherbergt der „Waldsetzkasten“ einen geschlossenen Raum der in den oben beschriebenen Fällen zum Aufwärmen und zum Jausen dient. Vorgelagert zu diesem Bereich befindet sich ein offener, jedoch gedeckter Unterschlupf.

Grand Facade | Marlon de Azambuja | Via

Sometimes, all you need to create some magic is some magic markers. In a new series called Gran Fachada (“Grand Facade” in English), Madrid-based architect and designer Marlon de Azambuja works this marker magic on color photographs of famous museums around the world, from the Whitney to the Pompidou and the Tate Modern. Using a marker to black out sections of these images, he reveals fluorescent color-negative line drawings, which would probably look amazing as velvet black-light posters. Thin outlines of color expose where the contours of an architectural rendering would be, the intricacy of which approaches that of the buildings’ original blueprints.

"I use the name “gazing bowls” because the word gaze is often indicative of wonder, fascination and awe. Like a rescinding tide or desert after a rain storm, when the bowls are filled with water the color and patterns change. When I look into these bowls I feel as if they transform before my eyes, like staring at the ocean or the sky after a storm. These bowls can serve many purposes; resonant healing objects, meditation, a vessel for your favorite treasures or eye candy. My son loves to use them for our ever-expanding cabinet of curiosities." — Riley Salyards
