Here’s how ‘OLO’ turns your smartphone into a 3D printer

A US-based company claims to have created a portable device that lets users create 3D prints by using the light from their smartphone screen. The gadget called OLO is designed to be simple, consisting of three plastic pieces, one chip, and one motor, all operated by four AA batteries. It measures 720x1150x1480mm and weighs 780 grams and is compact and light enough to fit in satchels or backpacks, 'Gizmag' reported. Once an object has been loaded on the OLO mobile app, users then place the smartphone in the base, the company said.
