Do Want

It's a star map.  The problem with star maps in general is that stars are distributed in three dimensions.  The solution this map uses is that it is also in three dimensions.  It's engraved inside a solid transparent block using a carefully focused laser.

Still not plushies, but ideal for sitting atop your monitor.

1 In Vegas, there's a place you can go where they take pictures of your face from different angles, and then create a 3-dimensional image of your face inside a small clear plastic block by creating a lot of small dots to create the surface they want to represent. Seems like this is the same printing technology, but I agree with you that this is a better application of it.
