thingiverse makerbot customizer

Wow, I'm surprised this hasn't shown up on the list yet (or that I missed it)...

http://www.thingiverse.com/apps/customizer

This is very cool - make your design in openscad, post it to thingiverse with the tag "customizer", and this app automatically creates an interface for people to customize the model in-browser using your variables.  You use comments in openscad to add descriptions to the fields and specify the type of input (dropdown, slider, etc).

There's a contest going on right now, which is the only reason I noticed it.  It's on the front page of thingiverse right now.

The only shame is that it's behind a login, you need a Thingiverse account. 
I'm actually surprised no one else did this sooner. There are already some other OpenSCAD like projects that you can use online, it just misses a simple interface in which you can edit the parameters.
