In a good, pixelated way. LEBLOX was created by Mathieu Lecoupeur and Soy Phompraseuth and it's coming your way... someday. Combining the worldwide love of 8-bit anything and our irrational desire to reproduce our own faces and images ad nauseum, LEBLOX lets you turn anything into a low-res 3D object. The French design team hopes to support an interactive community, sharing designs, advice and art. Towards that they've built what looks like a simple, user-friendly app to design and test prints you'd like to make right on your phone. The app is due to be released "soon" according to their exceptionally uninformative website. I suppose their work speaks for itself.
After destroying the photo quality and determining the scale and 3D-ness you'd like, you can send the file off to print. The turnaround time is currently one week within France, and they're in the process of picking an American printer to meet demand from this side of the pond. Given the undying obsession with 3D printing and sharable patterns over here, I think the move is warranted.
Game characters, emojis, high kicking martial arts gurus, aging pugs, jewelry, your own smug face—it's all fair game. Keep an eye out for the app, then go blox yourself.
