Guy Selling Flappy Bird Drawing for $1,000, Say What?

3Doodler Racks up over $2 Million
You might remember last month when we talked a bit about the 3Doodler pen. This is a device that reminds me of a combination of a 3D printer and a hot glue gun. The 3Doodler uses strips of plastic to allow the user to build 3D objects only limited by their imagination.

The Pokeymans Project: Hilarious Drawings of Pokémon Based Solely on their Descriptions
