Getting children started with coding and 3D printing is never a bad idea. Regular 3D printers can be quite expensive. They are not always kid-friendly either. The Rever is an affordable 3D printer designed for kids. It has a translucent safety door that allows kids to watch the printing process without having access to dangerous parts. When the door opens, the dangerous parts are locked away.
The Rever printer uses PLA plastic cartridges. The device offers WiFi connectivity, so you can interact with it from an iOS or Android device. The software is open source, which helps. Like what you see? You may want to support this project on Kickstarter.
