3D printing often comes associated with high costs and intricate computer programs, but the ONO 3D printer is democratizing the medium with a low price point and the option to control everything from a smartphone. Designed by Filippo Moroni and Pietro Gabriele -- as well as a dedicated team of engineers, designers, researchers and artists -- the ONO 3D printer aims to introduce new users to 3D printing while also remaining a powerful tool for seasoned veterans.

The printer itself is quite small but still manages to pack in features seen in much larger models. The printer operates using a vertically lifting platform, a resin bath and a dedicated dock for smartphones. To determine what to print, users simply need to select a 3D file from the ONO app and place the phone in its space below the resin bath. The ONO 3D printer is perfect for small project and prototypes and is currently available for just $99.
