Japanese have designed a 3 D Phone booth for the first time in the world.
This morning I posted their designing odorless underpants.
“aiming to replace the ubiquitous photobooth, japanese omote 3D have conceived a limited edition pop-up
installation at the eye of gyre exhibition, that reproduces personal detailed miniature action figures.
ranging from 10 to 20 centimetres in height, the system utilizes a three-dimensional camera and printer
to process and scan users, creating custom scale reproductions. the three-step procedure requires
the user to keep still for 15 minutes while the scanners capture the data.”….
3D printers – it’s a word that offers glimpses into the future that seems so far, and yet is so close. The technology, which allows you to replicate 3D objects the same way you make a photo copy, has been around for a couple years now, but, for the most part, has been far too expensive and inaccessible to the public.
But now, what’s being called the world’s first 3D printing photo booth is set to open for a limited time at the exhibition space EYE OF GYRE in Harajuku. From November 24 to January 14, 2013, people with reservations can go and have their portraits taken. Except, instead of a photograph, you’ll receive miniature replicas of yourselves.
