Imagine this. You are at a wedding and in the corner is a new type of photo booth…but this one creates a perfect, miniature 3D model of you!
Earlier this year I watched an episode of Click on the BBC that showed how objects can now be printed in 3D using anything from chocolate to concrete including metals and rubber. This was predominantly thought to be great for producing instant models for engineering and construction but of course, it has now made its way into mainstream cosumerism.
Now you can leave the wedding with a life-like, mini you with the bride and groom as a reminder of that day.
The uses for this are pretty cool. Your kids can dress up in all their best outfits and make cool little models for them to play with rather than buy the generic figurines from the store. How about making up models of all the people you dislike and then using them for target practice with a .22 air rifle or catapult (saves doing jail-time for the real thing ; )
Just kidding, I am a pacifist.
I reckon that within a year, these booths will be everywhere…genius.
