For all of you 3D Photo Boothers:

They even handle pets!

I'm going to bring in a Puli and see how it goes:  ;-)

BTW, do you think their 3D printing process is using the same color reproduction technique as at Sculpteo?

It looks like they are getting somewhat reasonable reproduction of smaller details.

It's certainly nothing new, but cool nonetheless!

It's a real travesty that Agisoft never gets a mention  :-[ my3Dtwin have also gone on a huge media frenzy in the UK, in many papers and magazines, it must cost a fortune!

Yeah, I think that Japanese pop up store (http://www.omote3d.com/) seemed to get quite a bit of press when they launched last year.

my3Dtwin seems to cost even less than the TwinKind folks...a race to the bottom? (quantity over quality I would imagine as well) It seems like it'll show up here in SF at Pier39 for 20 bucks in a couple of years.  ;-P
