Gift your loved ones a mini version of yourself
Want to humour your ego? A shop in Paris customises pint-sized presents using 3D printing technology
Marais: Thanks to a new pop-up shop in the hip Marais district of Paris, family and friends can now have mini-me versions of the buyer to cherish forever.
The Le Moimee Store is one of the first boutique shops that offers customers the option to use 3D printing to make little copies of themselves for around $285.
The 3D figurines are one-twelfth the size of its subjects. Customers can pose however they like and wear whatever they want for the rendering, and the results seem to be pretty accurate.
“We think of it as giving new life to the portrait. You know what you look like in a picture. But the day you see your mini version you go, ‘Wow, I look like that?’” said Sylvie Roche, the project director of the mini-me venture.
So far, about 15 people have purchased the figurines at the pop-up shop, and we are sure their families will appreciate the pint-sized presents.
