3D printing and 60 cameras makes an insanely detailed human-shaped lump of plastic

A Texan studio won't take a portfolio of images for photo frames--you'll get a 3D printed figurine instead.

If you're ridiculously photogenic, are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, have 30 minutes and some money to spare, perhaps you should visit the Captured Dimensions studio to get a 3D figurine of yourself.

Captured Dimensions aims to capture your best pose and create a highly detailed 6-13 inch replica of it with a 3D printer. in order to make these incredible Mini-Mes, Captured Dimensions takes your photo using no fewer than 60 DSLR cameras, and the camera array captures everything from your profile to your toes. The company uses a rendering software suite to stitch the photos together and create a 3D model file, which it can then send to a 3D printer.

For up to $2295, you could have some really cool wedding cake toppers, a modern take on a bust, or if you strike a number of poses, some very strange new toys to present your kids with (Hey, who said vanity comes cheap?). Of course, it's not the first time we've seen this 3D figurine trend--Omote 3D and Twinkind offered a similar service--but this is probably the most intricate ones we've seen so far.
