Export to World: Virtual Objects Get Real

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 12, 2008


There’s nothing quite like a delicious virtual donut and a hot cup of paper coffee before parking it in front of the fake TV to get my day going.

Virtual Donut from Export to World

This off-the-wall creative project takes items seen in the 3D virtual world of Second Life, and transforms them into real-world (paper) objects.

Virtual Paper TV from Export to World

Export to World is a concept created by Linda Kostowski and Sascha Pohflepp which converts the oddly-textured 3D computer objects and turns them into papercraft models which can be assembled with scissors and glue.

There’s a complete gallery of models they’ve converted so far over on Flickr. PDFs of the paper cutouts are available here. They also offer some tips and tricks for exporting your own paper models.
