Shapeways PhotoShaper launched

Shapeways is a Philips Incubator Project, and they have just rolled out PhotoShaper. For the uninitiated, PhotoShaper is the first online service that enables basically anyone to transform photos into 3D printable objects by Shapeways. If you’re interested to find out more about PhotoShaper, head on here. All you need to do is upload your favorite photo and let Shapeways PhotoShaper do the rest of the job, as it goes about creating a depth-layered 3D object based on the contrast of the picture instantly, where the latest 3D printing technology known as Rapid Prototyping are performed. This looks like a great way to create a gift, as it offers something different from the usual ceramic mug or photo frame.
