Not everything is bigger in Texas now that Houston locals can miniaturize themselves. Artec 3D, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional 3D software and hardware, and Houston-based startup 3D MAKERY, a 3D scanning experience and printing services provider, are making this possible with a new installation of Artec’s Shapify Booth at the Memorial City Mall in Houston, Texas.
Once a customer steps inside and strikes a pose, the booth takes just 12 seconds to conduct a full-body scan. A digital model is then rendered in minutes, which can be used to produce a full-color figurine called a “Shapie.”
While most of the world is using smartphones and selfie sticks to preserve life’s special moments in photographs, Houston shoppers are the newest group to have access to the next-generation technology enabling people to capture these moments in three dimensions.
Creating a Shapie not only offers the new-world experience of stepping into a body scanning booth, but results in a priceless memento of a significant life experience like your first day of school, making a sports team, graduating, getting married and even being pregnant. These tokens serve as a more vibrant home accent than the typical photograph, and also make truly personal gifts for friends and family.
