This is part of a series of articles that looks at entrepreneurs hoping to get their ideas off the ground through crowdfunding. At the time of writing, each of these innovations is currently seeking funding.

Learning how to design and print in 3D usually requires the ability to get to grips with complex hardware and software. Now, a new device aims to make designing and printing as easy as waving a wand. The Yeehaw Wand is an augmented reality (AR) tool that looks something like a colourful spoon. To use it, users connect the wand to an app on their phone or tablet, hold the wand in front of the camera, and use it to draw whatever they want or hint over objects in the real world. The drawing will appear on the screen, and can then be printed on a 3D printer, or sent to Yeehaw or a local service for printing.
