A photo booth that captures 3D mini replicas of you

A photo booth you can walk into and emerge with a mini-me replica on your way out, why not? The world’s first 3D printing photo booth has popped up in Tokyo — specifically, at the Eye of Gyre exhibition in Harajuku. For a not-too-modest fee of 21,000-42,000 yen (US$265-$530), you can get your portrait taken as a mini-me replica in varying sizes of tiny, from a small-sized 10 cm to an L-sized 20cm. The booth is now up till next January.
