Get your very own real life mini me

Forget the days of having the traditional family portrait in a white wash studio with false pillow fights and awkward smiles. Photography has now gone 3D. Behold the Omote 3D Shashinkan pop-up printing booth, a genius invention  designed by MVRDV and put out to the public by Japanese creative agency Party.

Launched in Tokyo this week, instead of a paper memory , you can have a model of yourself available in three sizes; small (10 cm), medium (15 cm) and large (20 cm).

Participants need to stand for roughly 15 minutes whilst a member of the team scans them with a hand held scanner and the figurines are then printed out on a 3D printer. Shashinkan literally means photo booth and prices for models start from £160.
