TUAW reports on one of the latest items from Voxelous, a company dedicated to producing real models of items from popular games. This time (but now sold out) was the runner from popular iOS game Canabalt. Here’s the details: 
Printed on a color 3D printer, dipped in super glue for strength, and given a UV coating* to protect colors from the sun.
And it does look pretty good, doesn’t it?  (click for larger image)
We think this is yet another example of the fragmenting boundary between virtual and real items, as bridged by 3D printing. While we value real objects today, there may come a day when the value of a design is the same – or more.
