Making 3D printing even more interesting, Scandy is a New Orleans 3D printing startup that allows customers to create Scandy Spheres, which are pictures made in the form of spheres.

The company can turn photos into balls as well as human busts or furniture, however their 'Scandy Sphere' appears to be their primary product. Spheres differ in size, starting from balls that are two inches in diameter and going up to 4 inches in diameter. The service comes with an app that allows the user to take a photo with their iPhone and then order a Scandy Sphere in its likeness. The app takes several pictures of the subject and the end result is a panorama shot that projects on a sphere. Users can also source existing panorama images that they previously captured.

This fun and unique concept makes 3D printing accessible to the masses and is affordable to boot.
