World’s first 3D photo booth

This pretty much blows my mind.

We’ve looked at a few applications for 3D printing – from the practical to the unique but this example takes 3D printing to a whole new level. The world’s first 3D printing photo booth is set to open for a limited time in the Eye of Gyre exhibition space in Harajuku, Japan.

This is your opportunity for the ultimate family portrait, allowing you to have miniature replicas of the whole family made (wouldn’t it be great to have an annual 3D portrait of the family, so that you can see how the kids grew?). The figurines would also make pretty fabulous additions to the dolls house!

Reservations to use the 3D photo booth at Eye of Gyre must be made online, prior to visiting the exhibition. ‘Portraits’ are available in three sizes ranging from ten to twenty centimetres high and costing between 21,000 – 42,000¥. Eye of Gyre is open until January 14, 2013.
