I have Seen the Future and it is Awesome - Lix-the Amazing 3D Printing Pen
As a designer, what I find truly incredible about this pen is the ability of bringing a sketch to life immediately. At the moment, there are many stages between a sketch and the final product: there are various tests, sampling and then eventually the final idea takes shape.
With LIX, however, a product designer could 3D draw a chair and that would be it, done! The promo video shows some objects and accessories that have been created with LIX, and although everything still looks fairly rudimental and basic, its potential is incredible. I am sure that in a few years this new piece of equipment will have expanded into other areas and I honestly can’t wait to draw 3D textiles.
The future of art? Textiles? Design? Very interested in what you guys see as possible uses for this …
