There are so many digital avatars available out there like weemee or androidify me, but how about an old style analogue avatar. What started as a Kickstarter project is now a fully-fledged commercial business. Foldable.me allows you design yourself by choosing different aspects, such as eyes, nose, hair etc. They then print you up on matte laminate cardboard and send you out. You’re precision cut, so no scissors required and your foldable me will be about 8.5 cm tall (roughly 3.5in).
Cost is $11.99, including world-wide shipping.
