Own a mini version of yourself

austin-powers.jpg

You've probably read all about 3D printing and assumed it was a luxury kept for those with 24-carat gold slippers and live-in landscape gardeners. And to be honest, until now it probably was. Until now though.

ASDA is now offering a service whereby shoppers can purchase a 3D copy of themselves for a surprisingly reasonable price. In fact, you can obtain a 3D version of whatever you want but we just assumed you're as narcissistic as we are...

We tried the process for ourselves and it was relatively pain-free. A two-minute scanning session involves a 3D camera taking in every part of the desired object. It's then recreated in 3D by spraying ceramic fluid in thin layers to create a solid object.

You can see the scary results below. We keep expecting him to come alive once our backs are turned...

A 3D model costs just £40 and you can find your nearest store here.
