Talking Tom, by Outfit7, is a super-popular simulated cat that’s reached two billion downloads this Fall, 2014, and had 14 apps launched within four years. You can raise Tom from a kitten into a fully grown and opinionated cat.
Outfit7 and Toyze have signed an agreement to make 3D replicas of Tom possible. You will be able to use the upcoming Toyze app to turn your favorite Talking Tom and Friends into 3D models and share them with your friends online. You’ll be able to pick out features for your model like eye-color, hairstyle, clothing, and accessories. Tom even comes in eight different poses and 25 colors. The toys can be printed in sizes between one and eight inches tall.
Currently the Toyze site says the price of the models will depend on the size. Models that are around 2-2.5 inch are going for $50.
The Toyze app is available for free on the app store, so you can print up your favorite Talking Tom models for the holidays.
Autodesk is a well-known software company that makes the programs that game designers and developers use to create the games you play and love, from indie hits to AAA console and PC titles. They’re taking a step closer to the consumer realm wiht the 123D series, notably 123Creatures, an app for iPad that lets you design a creature from the wireframe on up, letting you realize your designs in true 3D, which can then be sent to a 3D printing service from within the app itself. Cool stuff, really.
