Cabe, recently I had read about 4D printing. It seems that technology is going beyond imagination at avery high speed. As of now 3D is not so common and using only for very limited high end application printing
Yes, those storybooks were expensive, TJ, but they were still affordable for most of those who would be interested is that type of gift. I like your idea of creating a gift market sans the 3D printewr.
Greg, I see a BOOMING voodoo doll market when the price drops a bit.
I had to get that out of my system.
I'm of two minds - sure, this is a bit silly and extravagant. And yet, I could see giving one as a gift (maybe as a somewhat elaborate gag). Or as a doll set of a family (assuming they can be fabricated of more robust material). There're possiblities to be sure.
This is fun. It seems more complicated than the technology used to create the Sad Keanu figure a few years ago. A picture of Keanu Reeves sitting on a park bench became a meme in 2010. Shapeways.com offers all sorts of fun 3D printed items but not custom, as far as I remember.
It's pricey but a good gift idea to turn a favourite facebook post into a 3D memory.

Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
