Make a 3D figurine of yourself using the Kinect

For $59 a piece, consumers can make a full-color 3D print figurine of themselves through the Shapify.me web service using Microsft Kinect's 3D scanning technology, according 3D printing developers Artec Group

Users are free to scan any object "capable of maintaining the same pose and facial expression" but Artec do not recommend "scanning any transparent, shiny or glossy surfaces." All figurines produced are $59, including shipping and handling, "regardless actual size or material."

To make Shapify.me-supported scans of bodies, complying animals or inanimate objects, users require audio speakers, USB 2.0, an internet connection, Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360; or, Microsoft Kinect for Windows with either Windows 7 x64 bit or Windows 8-operated machine featuring Intel Core I3 or later and at least 4 GB RAM. Further details about the service and the technology are available on the Shapify.me website.
