    Very Cool!!!!

    This is actually the same principle as a 3-D printer. There are even hand-held 3-D 'printer' available which use the plastic filament (just like glue-sticks) and make free-form objects.

    How many glue sticks did it take for this? And how tall is it?


    T... ;)

    Wow, this is awesome! It's like the DIY version of the 3D pen that you can do at home :) and it looks like a cool tornado!

    Cool! It looks like a tornado, or a water spout.

    And this must be that 3D printing that all the kids are talking about ;)
