It's very cool. :-) A few comments:

1) I really hate implicit conversion operators. I think it'd be better to
use something like is_valid or empty instead.

2) I think all the type_info stuff can be replaced with a single
dynamic_cast in to_ptr.

3) to_ptr seems like it would be better off as an internal method that
clients shouldn't call.

4) The name copy_to is a bit clumsy. get would seem pretty reasonable.
