World’s First 3D Printing Photo Booth to Open in Japan

World’s First 3D Printing Photo Booth to Open in Japan | Artists & Authors | Scoop.it
3D printers – it’s a word that offers glimpses into the future that seems so far, and yet is so close. The technology, which allows you to replicate 3D objects the same way you make a photo copy, has been around for a couple years now, but, for the most part, has been far too expensive and inaccessible to the public.

 

But now, what’s being called the world’s first 3D printing photo booth is set to open for a limited time at the exhibition space EYE OF GYRE in Harajuku. From November 24 to January 14, 2013, people with reservations can go and have their portraits taken. Except, instead of a photograph, you’ll receive miniature replicas of yourselves.

What Makes An Idea Worthwhile?

What Makes An Idea Worthwhile? | Artists & Authors | Scoop.it

 

Let’s say you have a character who is hungry. You decide to show the reader that he’s hungry by having him stare into a baker’s window looking at all the lovely cakes.

 

So he’s drooling, stomach rumbling and all these delicious cakes, which you describe in great detail, are just out of his reach.

 

You ask yourself, does what I’ve written convey my intention? And if you think it does, then that’s that.

 

But when other people read what you’ve written, they may not like it. They may say, yes, he’s hungry, but so what? It’s a lot of lovely cake description, but I know what a cake looks like. Yes his need for food is apparent, I get it. But why are you telling me?

 

And at that point you look back at the story and you ask yourself, why did I want the reader to know my character is hungry?

How To Be Creative When Your Brain Doesn’t Want To Play | Artists & Authors | Scoop.it

See if this scene sounds familiar…

 

It’s time to write. You’re at your computer with your favorite beverage half an arm’s length away. The lighting is just right – and you have the climate control set exactly the way you like it.

 

Conditions are perfect.

 

You put your fingers on the keys and…

and…

 

Nothing.
