Oh, eBay. You are seriously the best dotcom survivor of them all. You are so full of cool stuff. I have built so many killer Magic: The Gathering decks thanks to you, and now I can get custom 3D printed stuff from companies like MakerBot. What will you think of next?

eBay announced today it’s releasing a new iOS app called eBay Exact. With said app, you can order from a small catalog that includes iPhone cases (from $9), jewelry (up to $350), and other typical 3D-printed fare.

Items are customizable, to an extent — colors, sizes, names, etc.

Here’s what the whole shebang looks like:

“Shoppers today not only want to buy items anytime, anywhere through mobile devices, but they also want to be able to personalize their purchases,” said eBay innovation VP Steve Yankovich in a statement. “eBay Exact brings these two desires into one shopping experience.”
