Omote 3D Photo Booth Churns out Miniature Models of Yourself Instead of Pictures
November 16th, 2012
2D pictures are so yesterday. At least, they are in Japan. Rolling out on November 24th in Harajuku are 3D-printing photo booths called the Omote 3D.
Instead of flat prints, people will get miniature 3D figurines of themselves for a souvenir. It’s not as ‘instant’ as the former, since people will have to remain in their poses for about 15 minutes while an attendant performs a full body scan.
The 3D models are available in three sizes from four to eight inches, with prices ranging from appx. $258 to $516 (USD) per person, depending on the size of the miniature. Pricey, I know.
The booth will be open until January 14, 2013 at the EYE OF GYRE, so drop by if you happen to be in the Land of the Rising Sun.
