The practice of taking selfies has become -- quite frankly -- pretty flat. Just in time to bring another dimension to self-centred photography is the Scanify, an innovative device developed by Fuel3D. This handheld gadget is intended to be pointed at the portrait subject and moved around to get a three dimensional image of what's before it.

It's pretty incredible what the Scarify can do. If you're your own photographer, you can capture a high-definition impression of your own face; meanwhile, a friend can help you digitize the entire shape of your head by circling you. But far more useful than a device that promote virtual vanity, the Fuel3D Scanify can map out the form of any object you wish. From there, you can realize it with a 3D printer.

The fine-tuned invention was presented at CES 2015 with a price of nearly $1,500.
