3Doodler Project Raised over $2.3 Million, Let the 3Doodling Commence!
One of the coolest projects I’ve ever seen turn up on Kickstarter was the 3Doodler, which always reminded me of the mix between a 3-D printer and hot glue gun. The device is a pen that heats up strips of plastic allowing the user to draw three-dimensional shapes in the air.

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.

Classic Macintosh Pen Holder: The Mac is Mightier than the Pen
It’s been nearly 30 years since the original Macintosh hit the scene, so that definitely makes me feel old. But despite being ancient technology, I still love the little computer that smiled at you when you powered it on, and frowned when it crashed.

JaJa Stylus Starts Shipping to Kickstarter Supporters

Stab-Resistant Prison Pens: So People at the Office Can’t Stab You in the Back

Stab-Resistant Prison Pens: So People at the Office Can’t Stab You in the Back
Almost everything can be turned into a weapon. I think that much is clear if you’ve seen footage of prison brawls, where anything from spoons to toothbrushes can be deadly objects. How much more if prisoners somehow manage to grab an officer’s pen?

I’ve longed for a stylus that was actually good for drawing on my iPad, but after many purchases, I’m still not satisfied. What I really want is something that has a fairly fine tip, but can also produce pressure data.

Fading Highlighter Fades Away After One Semester: Yay or Nay?

Fading Highlighter Fades Away After One Semester: Yay or Nay?
I’m not boasting, but most of my college textbooks look pristine. That means that you won’t find any highlights, notes, or markings on any of their pages. Not because I plan to resell them or anything (although I probably could, so I could make a few extra bucks), but because I think highlights look kind of messy.

LunaTik Touch Pen is Actually Quite Logikal
We’ve featured several stylus-pen combos, but none of them are as simple to use as the LunaTik Touch Pen. The LunaTik is a lot like a click pen – push a button on top to make the ballpoint tip appear, push again to make it disappear.

There are basically two kinds of styluses available. The ones with a thin tip, that allow you to write, draw, and select stuff on a resistive screen, and the ones with a somewhat larger tip, that mimic the way that you use your finger, designed for capacitive touch screens.

The stylus ballpoint pen is a clever product, but Griffin does Monteverde one better by incorporating a third device. The Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer is a stylus, pen and a laser pointer all in one.

Pogo Sketch Pro Stylus for iPad Artists

Pogo Sketch Pro Stylus for iPad Artists
If you are the sort that likes to draw or just doodle on your iPad there are apps out there that will turn the tablet into an art pad. The only catch is that if you are serious about your drawing, using your finger isn’t how you want to go.
