When someone says ‘3D Printer’, the last thing that comes to mind is ‘affordable, portable and easy to use’. The OLO Smartphone 3D Printer however, manages to be those things and more.

Using nearly any sized smartphone, users can print objects designed in the software of their choice simply by sending it to OLO’s iOS, Android, and Windows capable app. Once the design is on the app, all a user has to do is to place it under the OLO, pour resin into the chamber, and let the printer do the work. By using a photo sensitive resin that hardens in response to the light emitting from your phone, the printer can create layered 3D objects with ease. Depending on the size and type of job you are looking to take on, the OLO can print objects one by one, or several at the same time. While that is all pretty impressive, what stands out more than anything is the price point. People have been saying for years that soon there will be a 3D printer in every home – and with OLO retailing for $100, it might be finally happening. [Purchase]
