This could be you!
That is, you could get a little miniature figure of yourself from Sculpteo, a 3D printing company that makes your designs into tangible objects. The avatars are pretty nifty, and are actually designed by an artist using 3D modeling software — once you approve the 3D model, the figurine is printed and shipped to you. Here’s a video of the process:
Of course, they don’t come cheap, either: prices start at about $75 for the figurines. However, one lucky GeekDad reader will win one of the 2.5″ models for free! Just leave a comment below saying what geeky accessories you’d want on your avatar, and we’ll pick a winner at the end of next week. After you submit your photo, you can have your mini-me in about 10 days.
