As Chris Anderson (former Editor-in-Chief of WIRED magazine) said a while ago, 3D printing can be THE connection between gaming (virtual) and real life playing. A great example he gave for this is that his daughters asked him after playing SIMS for hours if he wanted to help them build the furniture peaces that are shown in the game so they could play with them in real life as well.
The desire to play with toys in real life will always stay and VEEMEE – in cooperation with Playstation – is the smart one by being the first to jump into this with both feet. PlayStation®Home now offers a 3D printer called the VEEMEE 3D printer. The printer uses the SLS technology.
The 3D printer will be available in the PlayStation®Home as of today. This is their press release:
Bring your PlayStation®Home personal space bang up to date with the laser-driven technical marvel that is the VEEMEE 3D Printer.
No more (virtual) trips to the (virtual) mall for (the virtual) you. Instead you can stay at home and manufacture a wide variety of (virtual) items in the comfort of any personal space. Hologram Chair, Beast Companion, Ninja Throwing Stars, Seagull Hat or… Feet for Hands..? All these and more can be printed out in a few seconds for you and your friends.
