Fabjectory takes your virtual characters & objects and makes them into detailed, full color, real-life statuettes.
Users upload an image file of their virtual object, and Fabjectory (usig a rapid prototyping technique) will produce a physical version. For now they are only doing this for Nintendo Mii characters, Second Life Avatars and Google Sketch-up 3D objects.
While Fabjectory might just be making simple toys, it does show the potential of taking digital creations & assets and bringing them into the offline world with physical representations. As social networks increase in value in our lives and the web itself more personal to us, these bridges -- online & offline -- become more interesting.
