ASDA CREATES 3D MINI PORTRAIT OF HUMAN BEINGS

1553

Asda creates 20.32cm (8in) ‘mini-me’ figures with its new modern technology using detailed scans of people’s face and body. This could soon replace the traditional family portrait with 3D models made on a printer.

Scanning booths, being opened in Asda stores, take just 12 seconds to snap thousands of photos and build them into a 3D image. This is sent via the web to a facility where a 3D printer uses it as a template to build an identical model using ceramic powder and coloured dye.
