Hasbro has unveiled what has been described as 'the world's first children's handheld 3D printer,' a craft kit using a distinct new form of Play-Doh that hardens over night.

Titled the DohVinci, the set features newly formulated Play-Doh and a hand held extruder, allowing kids to draw and create any design they like.

The Play-Doh comes in fine-tipped cartridges, stopping it from hardening before use. Once a picture or model is created, the Doh hardens overnight, meaning that mistakes can be wiped away immediately.

While tech site Gizmodo's description of the new product as 'a handheld 3D printer for children' has been met with varying degrees of objection, Hasbro seems a fan of 3D printing as the firm recently partnered with 3D printing specialists, 3D Systems.
