Honey, I Shrunk The Kids With This 3D Printing Service

Japan Fotofig makes 3D printed fugures of people

3D printing is not yet an everyday mundanity, so there are many ways in which it’s still a great novelty. Japanese startup Fotofig has recognized this and is creating mini figures of people using only photos as a source. It’s a fun way to see you or the kids shrunk to about the size of a paperback book.

There’s no specific app for this, as you only need to send in a bunch of photos of the person/pet you want to shrink into figurine form to Fotofig. And then pay up. The service is not cheap, costing about $400 for a 15cm figure, and $650 for a 25cm one, note our friends over at Startup-Dating.

If you’re prepared to wait nearly a year, you could buy an entire 3D printer from a Singaporean startup for about 300 bucks and then do-it-yourself with the help of a free app.
