Shapify uses a Kinect to let users create a 3D Mini-Me from home

To make a three-dimensional color statue of yourself, you could grab a chunk of marble and enlist the services of a sculptor and a painter, or you could take the simple approach and use a 3D scanner and a 3D full-spectrum multicolor printer. Since the first option is expensive and time-consuming and very few of us have access to the equipment for the second, Shapify has launched a service that lets users scan themselves at home, using a Kinect. 
There are already a number of companies that offer to print 3D figurines in your likeness, however they require a visit to their location for a scan – not a simple thing when the scanning studio isn't just down the block, but requires a trip to Spain, Germany, or Japan
