Create a Mini 3D Selfie with

I’ve never been one of those geeks who collects action figures, but I wouldn’t mind owning a 3D figurine of myself. Well, gives us the ability to scan and print a three-dimensional mini-selfie of your very own, from the comfort of your home. utilizes the Microsoft Kinect sensor in order to make this possible – no need for expensive 3D devices. After downloading the app from its website, all you need to do is take pictures of yourself through your Kinect (a series of eight pictures from all sides of your body). The program then compiles these images into a 360-degree 3D model to be used for your figurine. Each 3D selfie is $59 (free shipping) and is 1/20th of your height.

While this isn’t certainly the first time we’ve heard of 3D-pretty mini-clones, it is – by far – the most accessible. Most require you to visit the site of operations, where they use their own 3D equipment to do the scanning. Artec Group, the company behind, is renown for manufacturing and developing professional 3D scanning devices, but through, people need nothing more than their Kinect device to conduct this task. So, while it won’t let you print your mini-statue from home per se, the scanning part you can certainly accomplish on your own.
