Turn your selfies into 3D figurines

Shapify.me allows users to create mini-clones with Kinect

For $US59, the new Shapify.me service will turn a Kinect-based body scan into a three-dimensional figurine – all within the confines of the consumer’s home.

Shapify.me is the product of Luxembourg-based 3D imaging vendor, Artec Group, which manufactures 3D scanners and 3D face recognition technology.

To create and order a 3D figurine, all that is required is Microsoft Kinect for Windows in order to do the body scan, the Shapify.me web site, and a PC with fairly standard specifications (including an Intel i3 CPU or better, 4GB RAM, and 64-bit Windows 7 or later).

Scaled to one-twentieth of a person’s actual height, the figurine can be purchased in either coloured or plain white plastic, the latter of which allows buyers to paint whatever they desire.

Shapify.me figurines are priced from $US59. Delivery is free within the US and Europe. According to Artec, “delivery services to other countries are planned,” with the service set to go global soon.

Here are some sample images of Shapify.me 3D-printed figurines:

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
