A website's April Fool joke that took inspiration from printer technology has been a hit with readers.

ThinkGeek reported the introduction of the PlayDoh 3D Printer as the latest in the popular children's toy line, as part of the website's annual practical joke.

The mock-up of the toy, which was declared to be "iPad compatible", was accompanied with the tagline: "Create anything you can imagine!" applauded ThinkGeek's originality, having previously come up with concepts such as Hungry Hungry Hippos for iPad, Edible Gummy iPhone Cases and Playmobil Apple Store in previous years.

Rik Henderson wrote: "The Play-Doh 3D Printer plays perfectly on tech industry Zeitgeist. We're all suckers for 3D printing tales at the moment, with many believing that it is on the brink of being a mass consumer proposition."

Recently, research from Gartner urged businesses to embrace new printing technology early in order to remain ahead of the pack.
