The First 3D Printing Photobooth Is Like a Walk-In Shrink Ray

If you've ever thought it would be cool to have a miniature figurine of yourself—or maybe a loved one—just hanging out on your desk and doing it's thing, your day has come. The first 3D printing photobooth is due to open in Japan later this month.

From November 24th to January 14th 2013, those who wish get themselves a mini-me can go to the Eye of Gyre exhibition space in Harajuku for the procedure. The miniatures come in three sizes, roughly 4, 6, and 8 inches, and cost the equivalent of $265, $400, and $530 respectively, with modest discounts for groups. You can bet it'll still be expensive though. More here.

the link at the end the "More here" link seems to be broken.
Also, I do not understand how 3-d printing will be turning out, but we shall see, I hope it really takes off and replaces the typical ink jet printers.

I love the idea of the shrink ray although I'm already pretty short so maybe it'd be better if I didn't make use of it haha.
