John Biggs from Crunchgear reports on 3D body scanner/printer. BlablabLab set up an exhibit which took a 3D copy of a person’s body and printed it out into a 3″ high figure.
The video perhaps shows the possibilities as well as the pitfalls of digital fabrication.

When people mistake photographs of your physical prototypes for computer renderings, you know you’ve achieved something amazing.

always good to try out free software!
