OLO – The First Smartphone 3D Printer

OLO – The First Smartphone 3D Printer.

The 3D printing tech is getting more mainstream than ever. If ten years ago 3D printing for consumers was a scene from a sci-fi movie, now it is realer than ever. OLO is the first mobile 3D printer ready to hit the market for only $99. And, by “mobile” we do not mean just easy to move but cell phone powered.

OLO is a miniature but innovative SLA 3D printer that works with liquid resin. Made by a startup in San Francisco, the first smartphone 3D printer uses the flashlight and the screen light of your smartphone to cure the special resin and turn it into objects.

It is a special resin that hardens when exposed to a specific light spectrums and this is the key. OLO goes even further and comes with an app, which lets you send your friends objects, which they can print in 3D, just as you send texts, and photos.
