In ancient Greece, wealthy citizens commissioned busts of themselves in bronze. Centuries later, subjects sat for painted portraits, and then eventually for Daguerreotypes that could take upwards of 15 minutes to expose. At some point in the last 20 years, you probably hung around with your family in a Sears wearing a ridiculous turtleneck while an employee documented your clan in a few stilted photographs. So what’s next? Maybe something closer to those Greek sculptures–just a lot smaller.
Using the latest in 360-degree scanning and 3-D printing technologies, Twinkind, a new company based in Hamburg, Germany, will turn you, your loved ones, or your pets into a marvelously detailed little statues.
