A 3D printing photo booth appeared at the Beijing DRC Industrial Design and Creative Industry Base.

In a bid to gain some full-on experience, visitors can have their entire body scanned by a shoebox-sized 3D scanner. The multi-dimensional data will then be stored and processed by computer. Several hours later, they will receive a 3D life-like mini sculpture of themselves.
