Jessica: Last week, we told you about the 3 Doodler, a pen that can draw in three dimensions.
So, how about it? Do you think it is the next big thing?
Well, I would say so! Ninety-two percent of you said, “Yeah, give me 3D!
Eight percent of you said, “No thanks. I like to doodle old school.”
Now, we told you about the big 40th anniversary this week for the cell phone. And it seems everyday there is another new gadget designed to make the cell phone do even more for you. And that gets us to this week’s Next Big Thing.
