The ‘World’s Cheapest 3D Printer’ Is Small Enough To Fit In Your Pocket

3D-printing has been gaining more and more attention in recent years and is set to become the next technological leap that will change the way we live.

To make the 3D printer a household item, Canadian inventor Rylan Grayston has created the “world’s cheapest 3D printer” that you can own at just CA$100—amazingly, it is also lightweight and small enough to fit into your pocket.

According to Grayston, the “Peachy Printer” is “a photolithographic printer…[that] uses a controlled beam of light to cure light sensitive resin into hard objects”—users must first translate the objects they want to print into 3D models in Blender.

Currently sourcing for funds on Kickstarter, this incredibly affordable 3D printer comes as a kit that is designed to be fully assembled in just an hour—fully assembled kits are also available for CA$400.

Just a few days into its Kickstarter campaign, the Peachy Printer has already achieved more than 900% of its initial goal.

If you have always wanted your own 3D printer but could not afford one before, this is your chance—find out more about the Peachy Printer in the video below.
