Disney World Offers Guests Personalized 3D Printed Star Wars Memories
Disney World is using 3D printing technology to launch a new catchy souvenir for Star Wars Weekends this year.
One of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back is the moment when Captain Han Solo is frozen in carbonite. Starting May 18, guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can relive that memory and bring home a personalized carbonite figurine – with the guest’s likeness on it.
First, state-of-the-art cameras capture a guest’s face from multiple angles. Then, the image is sent to a 3D printer which produces a eight-inch figurine reminiscent of that famous scene in Star Wars.
This should prove to be a pretty popular attraction!
