Lix is Everything a 3D Printing Pen Should Be

Sleek 3D Pen

Lix isn’t the first 3D printing pen on the market, but it definitely has a leg up against one of the first that were released (read: the 3Doodler) because its shaped and built more like a pen than some over-sized marker. That means the user can create three-dimensional renderings with better control and more precise strokes and movement.

The Lix 3D printing pen was developed by Anton Suvorov, who will be launching it on Kickstarter in the new few weeks.

Capture Your Doodles On The Zpen

By Jonathan Kimak

I’ve seen digital pens before. They seem like a neat alternative for students who don’t have a laptop or just can’t be bothered to lug a laptop to each and every class. You write as normal and the pen remembers each pen stroke and can upload all your notes or doodles to a computer at a later time.

A key difference with the Zpen is that it doesn’t require special paper to record the data(paper that is usually rather expensive). The battery-powered Zpen can use regular sheet paper. It comes with a receiver that you clip to the top of the paper you are writing on. It also has handwriting to digital text conversion software built into the pen.

The Zpen has 1 GB of storage space and connects via USB. The price is a little steep at £99.99 which is roughly $180 US.
