3D Printing Photo Booth Opens in Japan: 3D Print Your Self Portrait
A new medium for the classic self portrait (or family portrait) is emerging in Japan thanks to 3D printing. As part of an exhibition called EYE OF GYRE in Harajuku, you may make a reservation to have your 3D printed portrait taken between November 2012 and January 2013.
Below is an illustration of the process of digitizing your portrait and creating miniature replicas in your likeness.
3D printed portraits come in 3 sizes: 10 cm, 15 cm, and 20 cm. The smallest print costs 21,000 JPY ($264 USD) and the largest costs 32,000 JPY ($400 USD) per person in the portrait.
Reservations and more details on the product are available at the Omote 3D website.
