Take your doodles to the next dimension with the AtmosFlare 3D pen.

The device uses a blue LED light and a special ink that allow you to draw 3D objects, at any angle. While 3D printers will cost you hundreds, you can try your hand at this high-tech craft with the AtmosFlare for only $30.

 Use the pen to create thin lines and shapes, designs, solid sculptures, and more. Draw and sculpt in midair or add your signature to buttons and pins. The only limit to creating unique designs with this 3D pen is your imagination.

While it’s nowhere near as sophisticated as the more expensive 3D pens and printers, the AtmosFlare gets high marks from reviewers as an amateur toy that will bring you hours of entertainment. (Just don’t expect the same precision of a computerized 3D printer.)


The AtmosFlare 3D pen is on sale today for just $29.97, through Amazon. The product normally retails for $39.99, and is currently at one of its lowest prices ever. Buy it here.
