Avatar… in real life (3D printing)

Our pal Mark at 3pointD is getting his virtual avatar from Second Life “3D printed”… – “Walker was produced by the Fabjectory 3D printing service of Second Life resident Hal9k Andalso (aka Mike Buckbee). I’m eager to see what Walker is like in real life, having occupied him virtually for almost two years now. (Is this a 3D model of Walker, or of me?) I love the idea of a 3D printing service for avatars, especially in full color; seems a sure thing to take off among SL residents, who are already obsessed with their in-world appearance.”Link.

World of Warcraft characters, Second Life avatars, Google Sketchup/Earth can all be “3D printed” and now there’s a business that will do it…right on schedule.
