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.
