PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 17, 2013 - If your Facebook profile could look like an object, what would it be? The Creators Project is launching a series of three new apps that transform your Facebook persona into 3D printable art.

By looking at your Facebook interests, Likes, relationships and status updates, the apps — called Monster Me, Crystallized and Astroverb — create an abstract sculpture that embodies your online presence. The project, which is done in collaboration with VICE and Intel, features an app which takes your profile page and morphs it into a real-life mini monster, while another crystalizes your friends network and the other cranks out a personalized zodiac sign based on your online personality.

Although the apps are free, the cost of printing a figurine is about $15.

"We wanted to play with the idea of taking your virtual self and bringing it back into the physical," Julia Kaganskiy of The Creators Project told Mashable. "We wanted it to be playful, fun and creative and brought on a varied group of our creators to develop unique artistic experiences using the data Facebook makes available."

In addition, the Astroverb app by Sosolimited looks at status updates and searches for keywords that fall into one of its six "personality dimensions." It ranks your profile based on how you score for each dimension and uses that information to construct a personalized horoscope and zodiac symbol.

"We're really excited about 3D printing right now and wanted to create a really easy way for people to try it for themselves," Kaganskiy said. "Shapeways was a great partner for that because they make the process painless and easy."

The apps launch on Thursday, Jan. 17.

Each app creates a 3D sculpture, which is printed by Shapeways, through layers of materials such as sandstone and stainless steel. It takes about five minutes to go through the creation and profile analysis process via the apps.

The Monster Me app by design studio Sticky Monster Lab uses your birthday to determine the monster's shape, geographic location to determine the environment and the number of friends in your network to decide how many mini friends your monster has within the app. It also looks at interests and Likes to determine the buildings in your personal "cityscape."

Meanwhile, the Crystallized app — developed by SOFTlab — visualizes social relationships and designs a crystal 3D structure to reflect that network. Each point on the geode represents a friend and its distance from the center is determined by the strength of your relationship, ranging from mutual friends to interactions on Facebook. "The interior represents your friend's interests and Likes as crystal clusters," the company said.
