London: Wonder if you can draw a doodle in the air without using paper? Yes, you can with the LIX, a 3D-printing pen, which is also the smallest 3D pen in the world. This pen allows you to express your creativity on a whole new level.

Developed by a London-based start up, LIX weighs just 40grams. Launched on Kickstarter, the new 3D pen has raised £100,000 in just 24 hours.

3Doodle, unveiled last year, became the world`s first 3D pen and is still currently fulfilling orders from its wildly successful Kickstarter campaign.
LIX 3D pen has a similar function as the 3D printers. It charges from a USB 3.0 port. LIX can take ABS (petroleum-based plastic) or PLA (plant-based) filaments, and outputs solid lines as you move the pen through the air.

The developers say LIX can even be powered by the electricity from a USB port in less than a minute after turning it on.
Makers of the pen hope to begin shipping the orders in October.
