Be Your Own Souvenir

Barcelona, Spain

You pose, get scanned, and end up with a tiny plastic toy version of yourself.  Awesome if you're a Dungeon and Dragons nerd.  The process used is 3D printing and will be common place very soon, with such practical uses as making the part to that thing that broke and is now rendered useless. Yaaaaayyyy!!!!  Finally a new volume knob for my Sony Walkman. Seriously though, isn't it a far better souvenir than a fridge magnet? The music in the video is "Ambling Alp" by Yeasayer.
