A syringe pump is a device that can accurately deliver small amounts of liquid. Syringe pumps are commonly used in hospitals for administering drugs intravenously and in labs for biological experiments. There are also interesting applications for a syringe pump at home, like automatic plant watering or 3D food printing. However, commercial 3D printers can cost upwards of $3,000! Instead of shelling out a couple of months of rent, Dr. D-Flo built two of Naroom’s open source syringe pumps for $200 each.
