3D Photo Printer
Some new 3D printing technology just released in Japan creates fully realized mini-replica action figures of your family members. The figures are isolated from family photographs. They come in a variety of sizes, up to eight inches tall.
To make it work, you have to stand still for about 15 minutes as a manually operated scanner records your full-body image from every angle. What is recorded is then tweaked before the 3D color print is made. Pricey right now at $255.
This technology should be headed towards the U.S. within the next year.
