Sciency Words: 3Doodler

Sciency Words MATH

Today’s post is part of a special series here on Planet Pailly called Sciency Words. Every Friday, we take a look at a new and interesting scientific term to help us all expand our scientific vocabularies together. Today’s word is:


Because drawing in only two dimensions is so 20th Century…

I have tried to think of a clear and intelligible way to explain what this thing does. How do you explain drawing in 3D? Like… drawing in actual 3D, without paper… Just watch the video. It’ll make more sense that way.

I don’t know if this is a toy or a serious tool for artists. According to the manufacturer’s website, the 3Doodler has already attracted the attention of the Museum of Modern Art, and it even had its own special window display at the MoMA Design Store.

So is this a fad or will 3Doodlers become a necessity for all serious artists? I’m not sure. All I know is I’m adding it to my Christmas list.
