With the deluge of 3D pens either hitting the market or being developed in recent years, you could be forgiven for dismissing the CreoPop as just another 3D pen with nothing particularly unique about it. You'd also be wrong.

What's ingenious about the CreoPop pen is that it uses light-sensitive ink that solidifies when exposed to UV light, allowing users to create 3D art. The CreoPop pen is safer than other 3D pens that use heated plastic filaments that could injure users, particularly children, if they are not careful.

The CreoPop pen uses three UV light diodes that harden the paste-like ink that comes out of the nozzle. The pen's battery is charged via a micro-USB port, meaning it can be operated without an annoying power cord dangling against your wrist and interrupting your creative flow.
