World's First 3D Printing Photo Booth 60

Zothecula writes "Ever wanted a life-like miniature of yourself or loved ones? Now's your chance, thanks to Omote 3D, which will soon be opening what's described as the world's first 3D printing photo booth in Harajuku, Japan. There, visitors will have their bodies scanned into a computer, a process which takes about 15 minutes. Then the company prints your statuette on their 3D color printer in one of three sizes."

    I can think of some really interesting potential here for "shooped-in" bits like, say, not-to-scale octopus tentacles added into the file before sent to print...

    A whole new level of photoshop'd funny-pictures is about to emerge. God knows what the 3D equivalent of lolcats will be. Interestingly, my gut feeling is that goatse won't "translate" very well as a three-dimensional meme.

Can't open /usr/fortunes. Lid stuck on cookie jar.
