From Naples to the stratosphere and back... with Digital DIY

(Preface: we visited Maker Faire Rome 2016, and invited the most interesting Digital DIY projects we found there to present themselves here on the DiDIY blog. We are happy to do so (SEE BELOW!), because on one hand, it helps us to collect relevant material for our mission, all in one place. On the other, it helps all our readers to understand how wide and dynamic the Digital DIY phenomenon is.

New tendencies: turn a smartphone in a 3D printer

The World Maker Faire is a great event to find out new emerging Do It Yourself technologies. 

Last October, OLO was announced in New York: OLO is a new 3D printer for smartphones. OLO hardens the photosensitive resin inside OLO's build chamber to print the 3D model, using the light released by the flat screen of the smartphone. 

The idea is born by two Italians, Filippo Moroni e Pietro Gabriele, reaching more than 2mln of funding to date.
