Smartphone 3D Printer OLO Rebrands as ONO
ONO 3D Printer for Smartphones

The $99 smartphone 3D printer that raised $2.3m in a Kickstarter campaign has changed its name from OLO to ONO.

The makers of the OLO 3D printer for smartphone has announced that they are changing the name to ONO. The reason for the change is a trademark issue with another company.

Rather than fight it, the makers of the cheap 3D printer have decided to do not waste time and just find another name. The name change caused some delays in the manufacturing, but the image below shows the first pre-production ONO 3D Printer.

The final molds were put into production and are estimated to be completed by August 24, at which point we will be able to make 1200 ONO bodies a day.

The ONO 3D printer is using the audio port of the smartphone to control the movement of the z-axis. As the iPhone 7 is not going to feature an audio jack, the company has to address that. In an email to backers the company addresses the issue:

"There has been concern that new phone models, such as the iPhone 7, may not have standard headphone jacks. This is something that we are aware of, but cannot design around until the phones or their specs come out. It’s on our radar!"

The $99 3D printer that uses a smartphone as heat source was a big success on Kickstarter back in March, raising $2.3 million in backing.

Watch the Kickstarter video introducing the cool 3D printer. I can't wait to print stuff with my kids (I have ordered an ONO). The ONO Smartphone 3D Printer is the latest entry in the I4U News Hottest Gadgets of 2016 list.
