Shapify.me allows users to create mini-clones with Kinect

For $US59, the new Shapify.me service will turn a Kinect-based body scan into a three-dimensional figurine – all within the confines of the consumer’s home.

Shapify.me is the product of Luxembourg-based 3D imaging vendor, Artec Group, which manufactures 3D scanners and 3D face recognition technology.

To create and order a 3D figurine, all that is required is Microsoft Kinect for Windows in order to do the body scan, the Shapify.me web site, and a PC with fairly standard specifications (including an Intel i3 CPU or better, 4GB RAM, and 64-bit Windows 7 or later).

Scaled to one-twentieth of a person’s actual height, the figurine can be purchased in either coloured or plain white plastic, the latter of which allows buyers to paint whatever they desire.

Shapify.me figurines are priced from $US59. Delivery is free within the US and Europe. According to Artec, “delivery services to other countries are planned,” with the service set to go global soon.

Here are some sample images of Shapify.me 3D-printed figurines:
