Pensa Creates First Desktop Wirebender

Congrats to DUMBO-base design firm Pensa, a semifinalist in Engadget’s first-ever Insert Coin: New Challengers Competition!

Pensa, responsible for all those nifty ATT Street Charge’s you’ve come across in DUMBO and elsewhere, is up to win the $25,000 prize for D.I.Wire Bender. D.I.Wire Bender is a rapid prototype machine that bends metal wire to produce 2D and 3D shapes, pushing the limits of what can be produced in different materials, forms, and methods, anywhere from a model shop to your home. And anything, it can make, from clocks to glasses to lamps. Check out this video below to see what the D.I.Wire can do:

The top ten choices will win a trip to Expand New York, happening November 9-10at the Javits Center, for a chance to win up to $25,000 in funding for their project. Check out the full list candidates right here.
