Shaped Pixels of Multiple different colors to compose a larger image

I have written a script for GIMP that generates different shapes/colors to make up the average color of a tile of the bigger image.

Here's a sample of what the script creates:
As you can see, in this sample I only used Squares, Circles and Triangles of different sizes/colors to make up a pixelized Mario image (from Super Mario World) JUST SQUINT OR VIEW IMAGE FROM FAR AWAY and You'll see Mario.

The script has in total 6 different (at least it is for now) shapes (Squares, Circles, Triangles, Plus signs, Diamonds and X'es).

When you run the script you can select which shapes you want to use in any combination.

The script can be found here:

Render Map and Render Forest Script for GIMP

Following instructions/tutorial found here:
I have decided to script the process in order to aid possible future indie game development.
You can find my scripts from this thread:

Here's a sample of what the script can generate from black and write drawn areas.

A model to control/pose 3D digital models

A friend and I want to do some art/animation.  We chatted and he said he ordered body-kun models and gave me a discount code to order some too so I did.  But then I thought we obviously can't afford real life motion capture, but what if such a toy model could hook up to USB port and control 3D Digital models on the computer.  That would be a great product.  We already have the mouse wheel control, just need to make like 13 of those on a model that sends the controls to a (probably custom written software) to control 3D Digital models to control/pose them.
I searched the internet and can't find such a thing so it probably doesn't exist yet.
If it did, I would most definitely buy it.
