Amazon is venturing more into 3D printing. Amazon just started to embed Mixee Labs' customizers on their product pages to enable customers to not just buy, but to create their own products.

For example, you can create your own' 3D printed Mixee bobbler here with Mixee Labs' widget. You can select from a variety of hairstyles, facial expressions, and fashion options and create a cute, cartoon mini twin with just a few clicks. Using the Mixee Labs personalization widget you can instantly preview your creation in 3D. Then your design will be made on demand with sandstone, a matte material that feels like unglazed ceramics, using the latest 3d printing fullcolor technology. The spring is 3d printed with laser-sintered nylon plastic.

"I've seen a few of 3d printed products on online retail site, but rarely do I see these sort of customization experience outside of specialized 3d printing websites." said Nancy Liang, Co Founder of Mixee Labs. "After all, that's at the core of what 3d printing is about---inviting and empowering people to create. I'm really excited about what this could mean for the future of 3d printing and and the future of retail!"

For now, Mixee Labs' Amazon widget is only available for desktop Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers. Purchases on Amazon are only shipping to the US. Purchases on MixeeLabs.com ships internationally as before.

Update: Jul.4, 2014

Amazon is adding some enhanced content to the pages and implementing some new features, so the listing is currentlly inactive. We will update the link when the product is re-launched again.

It's sandstone/gypsum printers for the bobble heads, not laser sintered nylon, according to the amazon page
