    hey gang. here's the deal.

    i'm working on a story right now, covering a consumer-level 3d printing business. it's incredibly cool. i spent the day playing with knick-knacks that came out of a piece of technology from the future. i've decided once i'm done filming the place, i'm going to enlist their services and get me something 3d printed. but i don't know what yet. this is where you come in. what would be some genuinely cool **** that i could get them to build me?

    for reference, their printer uses a plastic resin. it's not necessarily fragile, but it's not the strongest thing either. it does have elastic properties if something thin is built though.

    NOW GIVE ME COOL IDEAS

    Ever heard of the 1960s Plaster Caster? You should have a souvenir of your old self, to look back on once your transformation is complete.

    they actually do use a kinect to do full body scans, so that's not a bad idea. the problem is that i'm a lot closer to my final form than my starting form, so it would just be more like mid-way progress. i'll put that on the short list though, because it is pretty neat.

    Maybe they could scale it up for you, closer to original size? Also if someone tells you to "go **** yourself", you'll have the necessary equipment to do so.

    That was going to be my suggestion, but I thought it was spelled differently.

    K. Because I don't know about you, but when I went 'emeritus', I gave myself free reign to post things I never would have as an active mod...but I still try not to tip the boat with my reckless abandon. :D

    and Andrew- Vader mask or proton pack.

    I'd get the jaws of a python printed out and have them as a desk ornament.

    NO NO! That's a von neumann machine. Then there will be 2, then 2 will make 4, then 4 will make 8 and so on until they eat the solar system.
