During last night's Stephen Colbert segment on MakerBot 3D printers, Bre Pettis revealed that the MakerBot Industries had made a high-quality 3D scan of Stephen Colbert's head and posted it on Thingiverse for remixing.

And, if you're running short of ideas or want to see what other people have done with their 3D printers, don't forget to check out Thingiverse.com - an free online website for sharing designs.
