OK, so if you have happened to somehow  miss the whole “selfie” movement that’s been happening the past few years, please allow me to bring you into the loop. A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. But that is so last year. The brand new, cutting-edge cool in selfies is the “Shapie”, a 3-D Selfie! Think, you reincarnate….well, sort of.

This concept extends the selfie idea to 3D. Using the self-portrait feature concept, a special software and printer can generate a 3D printable of yourself in minutes. Here’s an example of a 3D self-portrait.

Can you say, Crazy Cool!!!

A Shapie Booth is a fantastic, fresh idea for your next event! Wanna create some wild buzz, or  ensure your party is THE Talk of the Town for the rest of the year….and beyond? This is one way that WILL do it – guaranteed!

Your guests can 3-D print themselves dressed up in their favorite duds or a fun costume. Everyone will be blown away by Shapies. And this could be THE BEST event takeaway  – ever! I mean, who is going to throw away their own little mini-me. These babies will be displayed on shelves and mantles…. as if they’re a golden Oscar. So how do you get a Shapie?

Well, one of the tops options is the brand new technology available in the Artec Shapify Booth. This is a 3-D body scanning and automated selfie making machine.

Basically, a seriously high-tech and cutting-edge photo booth.

Here’s how it works: Step into the booth to be scanned  – it takes about 12 seconds. That’s it.  Approximately 5 minutes later, a detailed 3D model prints out automatically.

Your guests can return at a designated time (or a later date, just to be safe) to collect their printed shapie, or  this can be a great fun (not to mention well received) way follow-up after your event.

Provide Shapies as a complimentary gift to your guests, or make them available at a set price to help you raise additional funds for a charity gala.

So, tell me…Love it or leave it?
