There’s a new product on the market that could soon replace the common photo booth at a wedding reception near you. It’s called the Twinstant Mobile Full Body 3D Scanner, and it’s pretty crazy.
The mobile scanning booth, which looks like a small circus tent with cameras surrounding the interior, was created by Berkeley-based Twindom, a company specializing in 3D body scanning technology. And it could revolutionize how we commemorate events, special occasions…and sure, even selfies.
Just a moment in the scanner is enough time for the cameras to capture a full-length, 3D image of pretty much any subject—adults, children, or even pets—and create a 3D image with high enough resolution to print a startlingly realistic, miniature figurine. Extremely unique wedding favors, maybe? How about cake toppers?
Every scan is also automatically shareable across social media channels (like the E! “Live 360” cam that captures every angle of a celebrity’s red carpet look), so event guests can post to their hearts’ delight.
Twindom has bigger plans than weddings alone, though. As their website states, “We believe everyone in the world will, one day, have a 3D model of themselves as part of their digital identity for applications in online shopping, virtual reality, gaming, health and fitness, and more.”
The future is a crazy place.
