Make your WoW characters real!

Well, almost! There’s a Windows-only application called OGLE now making the rounds, which intercepts the OpenGL data flow sent by games such as World Of Warcraft and permanently saves the information as a standardized 3D model file.

You could then go one step further, grab yourself a 3D printer (starting at an easy $18,000) and make a little plastic figure out of your character. Obviously this will work with other games (and MMOs: Second Life for example) too, so if you don’t even want to separate from your shiny avatar when you’re off to work, this is the way to go.

Now, if you’re one of the unlucky few not able to afford such a printer, you could always seek help at your local art or design school. Usually, they have access to these machines as they’re heavily used as a cost-effective way of instantiating concept designs and prototypes. This is your way to prove you’re a real MMO fanatic – if one of you is crazy enough to actually try this, let us know!
