Instead of getting a row of pictures of yourself, you’ll get a miniature doll that looks just like you.

An exhibition set to open in Japan will demonstrate the detail, intricacy and range of scale that 3D printing offers, while also pointing to larger expectations around the simple exchange of information across mediums and what 3D-printing is poised to deliver generally.

Billed as the world’s first 3D printing photo booth, the exhibition is scheduled to open for a limited time at the gallery space EYE OF GYRE in Harajuku, Tokyo. From November 24 to January 14, 2013, people can go and have their portraits taken and receive a 3D-printed miniature replicas in exchange.
