Have you heard? 3D printing is going to change the world. Nobody is sure exactly how—something about producing NASA spaceship parts, or was it human body parts? Either way, it’s a big deal and the boffins will figure it out sooner or later. But what can 3D printing do for us right now? Well, thanks to Twinkind in Mitte, you can now print yourself in miniature. That’s right, your very own Mini-Me, or as some people have started to call it: a 3D selfie.
Walking in off Auguststraße, you can get an on-the-spot scan from their custom machine (using Matrix-like super cameras), choose your preferred figurine size (ranging from 10cm to 30cm) and in a couple of weeks your life-like model will be ready for pick-up. Be warned: it’s extremely detailed and we’re talking ‘wrinkles included’ sort of detail. For an additional charge, however, Twinkind are happy to play the plastic surgeon and give you that nose job/chiseled six pack that you’ve always wanted. Mini-Me models start at €190, but their dinner party conversation value is through the roof.
