    Why take selfies when you can print out a 3D miniature copy of yourself?



    3D printing color figures of yourself is threatening to become a trend—in Japan last year designers PARTY opened a temporary 3D printing photo booth In a Tokyo gallery where people could turn up, get scanned, and walk away with a mini-figurine of themselves. And now, following on from that, comes Twinkind who are offering a similar service, but these guys are based in Germany.

    Much like the photo booth in Japan Twinkind is a temporary pop up studio, so will only be open for a limited time in Hamburg. The scanning happens very fast, "in the blink of an eye" according to their website, and uses a multi-camera setup to get maximum detail—and you can even take your pet along to get scanned and printed too.

    But it doesn't come cheap, starting at around $300 for a 15cm figurine and going up to $1700 for a 35cm one, which is actually an unnervingly large size for a figurine of yourself. Give it a few years and they'll be one of these studios on every street corner (I hope).

    Wow, that's pretty cool. I'm sure people will come up with some very creative things with their figurines once it becomes cheaper and more mainstream, lol.
