Omote 3D – World’s First 3D Photo Booth
Without doubt the development taking the creative world by storm is 3D printing and now thanks to those clever Japanese folks in trendy Shibuya, Tokyo, consumers now have the chance to enjoy it. A limited edition pop-up installation at the Eye Of Gyre Exhibition has conceived a 3D photo booth, Omote 3D which reproduces personal detailed miniature action figures of those taking part.
The figurines can be purchased in three different sizes, ranging from 10 to 20 centimetres in height, and make for the most unique Christmas present this year. Japanese street wear godfather Hiroshi Fujiwara has already tried out the new system, and created his own action figure below. The system utilizes a three-dimensional camera and printer to scan users requiring the subject to keep still for 15 minutes while the scanners capture the data.
