Makerbot 3D Photo Booth Creates Personal Portraits

Makerbot 3D Photo Booth Creates Personal Portraits

Customers can now visit the retail outlet to print a three dimensional monochrome version of their face.

At the official launch of its NoHo store, Makerbot introduced its own 3D printing photo booth, taking photography beyond digital. While not as detailed as the one we recently profiled in Japan, users will get a monochrome version of their head.

Amazingly, the service costs a total of $25. Customers will sit in the booth for a $5 scan and pay an additional $20 to get their face printed. This initiative was made possible by collaborating with Shapeshot, a 3D printing company focused on applications that relate to personalization.

While it is unlikely that this printing method will replace existing printing and photography methods, Makerbot is driving the forefront of a new technology that will evolve how we understand the relationship between printing and materiality.

Visit Makerbot’s physical location at 298 Mulberry Street in Manhattan or visit the store’s website.
