Origo, the toy 3D printer that makes more toys

by Mark R

In the future, every household will have a 3D printer like they have a 2D printer. You will note that I didn’t put a year on this, because I’m not stupid. Every time I read a sentence that starts with “by the year” it hardly ever comes true.

However, this Origo 3D printer could bring 3D printers into households sooner than later. The Origo is currently a concept from designers Artur Tchoukanov and Joris Peels, and it can turn any drawing into a 3D object.

I have no idea how it can translate a 2D drawing into a 3D figure, but here is the real cool feature of the Origo. After a child has created his or her toy, he or she can recycle the material and make another toy.

This 3D printer will be very simple to use as the Nintendo Wii or the Xbox 360. While we are on the subject of the Xbox 360, you should know that this thing is “as big as three Xbox 360s and as expensive as three Xbox 360s”.

It is an odd size and price comparison, but I still believe that the Origo is the future. I can imagine that they will be available in many colors by the time they will be sitting on the shelves at Wal-Mart.

That is way cool

The best selling educational product will be the TickleMe Plant greenhouse kit. TickleMe Plants are real plants that anyone can grow that will close their leaves and lower their branches when tickled. Parents who want to excite their kids about nature, gardening and science will love this Plant. Get your own from http://www.ticklemeplant.com My students run to homeroom to Tickle their plants each morning.
