Watching the innovation, I yet approximately don’t believe that it’s real, but, after a successful Kickstarter last June, the Electroloom clothing 3D printing device is quite coming to life and it’s quite awe-inspiring to watch. The startup – that obtained a big boost after being a part of the HAX hardware accelerator in Shenzen, China – is now in the process of fine-tuning its Field Guided Fabrication machines to donate them to backers. In the process, the Electroloom team has created and announced the Electroloom Mini to complement its larger Electroloom process.

The innovation behind the Electroloom is absorbing. First, users must have a mold for their garment, that can be CNC’d or 3D printed or actually handmade. After placing the mold into the Electroloom, a liquid solution is injected into the machine and is guided onto to the fabric by an electric field. The material, that has, at this point, been converted of liquid into solid cloth, actuallyly coats the mold until the task is fish. When the object is popped out of the machine, the user has a fish, seamless garment. Below is the Electroloom Mini, that demonstrates this process and one of the startup’s colored inks, a process they’ve been working on since the Kickstarter.

With the Kickstarter fish, the Electroloom team is hoping to get their machines out to their backers, who pre-ordered the larger-scale adaptation of the product for $4,500 and up. These alpha testers can assist the startup with feedback of the product and can be the initially to create applications for the Electroloom. So, it may be a few time preceding you can get your own Electroloom or actually an Electroloom Mini, but, by the time you can, hopefully the innovation can work as seamlessly as the products it makes.
