Be Your Own Souvenir Lets You 3D Scan Yourself And Take Home A Figurine

Be Your Own Souvenir! from blablabLAB on Vimeo.

This odd system uses a Kinect head and some homebrew software to 3D scan you in real time and then print out a micro-figurine. It seems to take a little bit of time – that’s not clear from the video – and the whole system isn’t quite ready for prime-time yet.

It’s made by BlablaLab in Barcelona. It uses 3 Kinect sensors and openKinect to create a mesh of your body that it converts into a Rapman 3.1 rapid manufacturer. Then it spits you out as a a little green army man-sized figurine. Pretty fun and ingenious.
