특별한 순간을 영원히…’3D 피겨’ 인기
Most of us think of celebrities or game characters when we hear the word ‘figures’.
But with the expanding usage of 3D printers, anyone can be a model and create a figure of themselves.
Kim Mok-yeon tells us more.
With advancements in science and technology, people can now create and treasure 3 dimensional figures of themselves and their loved ones.
With just one photo shoot in a booth where some 100 cameras are installed, the program finishes scanning the model from all angles.
After the machine combines all the data, it prints the figure by stacking up around 1,000 thin layers of gypsum powder and spraying ink on the surface.
The size of the figures can vary from 5 centimeters to 30 centimeters with price tags ranging from 26 to 260 dollars.
Because of the simple process and relatively affordable price, the popularity of creating these 3D figures is rising in Korea.
“I have to leave the country to educate my children abroad and I thought that making these figures would help keep my husband company.”
“I was amazed because it looked exactly like my children. I think it could comfort me every time I miss them.”
This latest technology is expected to act as a new type of record that can reflect and remind people of the precious moments they want to cherish.
