Play-Doh was way ahead of its time with its 3D Play-Doh, imagine the possibilities of making things with Play-Doh, sky's the limit.

Uh, how is this a 3D pen?

from the looks of it I would still need to actually put together, whatever it is that is coming out of the pen, into an actual object.

Aren't 3D printers suppose to actually make the item, not the material that will be used?

The items it makes has to be out of a material, pcb, resin soaked powders, heated steel powders in wax forms etc. This uses pcb plastic the same as Maker-Bot and others, heated up and take new form. By hand you'll never be able to get the 1mm level of control like a 3 axis machine will, but this would be great for on the fly fabrication at a meeting etc.

This is really amazing!

Target market should be schools in my opinion, help kids expand their minds in Art classes and think outside the cube.

One of these could be really handy for making custom fittings for all kinds of stuff. No, it'll never have the accuracy of a 3D printer. But they'll work great for jerry-rigging things.

as an avid 40k player i am really interested in this just even as a way to add custom graphical touches to models. heck if you make have a steady enough hand and are a good enough drawer you could make some basic figures with this .
