Turn Your Kid's Art into 3D Sculptures with Crayon Creatures

    My grandparents never threw much away, so when I was a wee lad I liked to crawl around in their attic and see what I could find.  Well I managed to find some ancient issues of Cracked Magazine that my uncle had collected and one of them had a feature that explored what kid's drawings would look like if they were real objects.  At the time it was hilarious because they built these weird, lopsided rockets, and 3 legged horses.  But now that I'm older and a bit more sentimental, the fact that a company has come along that can actually do this is pretty amazing.

    Crayon Creatures uses the latest in 3D printing technology to bring the craziness of a child's imagination to life in the form of unique figurines.  You can see more of what they do at http://crayoncreatures.com/ and even upload some art and make your own.  It costs about $130 in US currency for the figure and about $20 to ship it anywhere in the world.

  1. Those self-replicating 3d plastic printers are flat out amazing. But everything they print is usually all blue or gray, so these guys look like they figured out how to print color or add color to it afterwords, and are carving out a really bizarre niche with it!
