    Looks like life beginning to imitate (your) art!

    These descriptions are reminding me of those little vac-u-form wax toys that one could see being made under a mechanical glass dome. Usually at bigger amusement parks or science centers in the late ’60s

    It’s neat to do this via 3D printing, but it’s worth noting there are some toys already doing this. The Disney/PIxar Cars toys for iPad already have channels like this and use lit-up areas of the ipad display to shine through the toy (e.g. to light up headlights). The new Skylanders toys have pieces that light up, and I think in some cases they are doing this, but in others I think they may have an LED within the toy itself.
