This is exactly what I've been thinking. We're a small business & one of our new products is an educational game. We're planning on making avatars for students who reach a certain level

I really couldn't say it any better than that. The future for my 13yr old son will see 3D printing touching almost every aspect of his life. He knows it's cool that I can design and make pendants for him, but I don't think he has yet grasped just how much this is going to change the way he lives.... And I still get the deer-caught-in-headlights stare from most people when I try and extol its virtues. It'll take some time, but it will arrive.

"Build it and they will come!" takes on a whole new meaning!

That's a really interesting concept! Definitely keep us posted on how the avatars turn out or if we can help.
