The DIWire bends…wire?

DIWire
We’ve talked before about the new breed of desktop tools beyond the desktop printer, things like desktop cutters, 3D printers, and laser cutters, and we’ve even mentioned how we’ve used 3D printed camera mounts for our own work, but of the tools previously mentioned, none of them let you easily bend wire. I know that sounds strange, and you may be asking why in the world you would want to bend wire? Well, like any good tool, the answer lies in the creative mind.

Pensa, a design and invention firm in New York, posted about their DIWire Bender on the how-to site Instructables in January 2013. Less than a year later they’re launching it as a product via Kickstarter.

At the time of this post, the Kickstarter has been live for about two days, and they’ll be hitting their funding goal of $100,000 very soon. And if that’s not enough, they also won $10,000 from Engadget’s Insert Coin competition.

Will there be a wire bending machine on your desktop in the future?
