The Microsoft Kinect can be used to both play games and create 3D Mini Me Figurines. Yes, the motion-capture device can now be used to created three-dimensional selfies thanks to a company known as the Artec Group and the website Shapify.me. To create a plastic figurine of yourself, simply start by downloading the shapify app to your computer and then pair your computer with your Kinect.
You photograph yourself using the Kinect in a series of shots at different angles (same pose) to create the 3D model. Once completed, you send the photos off and your figurine will be delivered in a matter of days. The 3D Mini Me Figurines are created on a scale of 1/20 and feature white plastic bottoms or come free standing.
