world's first 3D photo booth prints personal miniature figures


personal action figures conceived using a 3D printing photo booth

 

 

aiming to replace the ubiquitous photobooth, japanese omote 3D have conceived a limited edition pop-up
installation at the eye of gyre exhibition, that reproduces personal detailed miniature action figures.
ranging from 10 to 20 centimetres in height, the system utilizes a three-dimensional camera and printer
to process and scan users, creating custom scale reproductions. the three-step procedure requires
the user to keep still for 15 minutes while the scanners capture the data.
