Not content to give their Indiegogo donors a typical T-shirt and tchotchkes package, 3D scanning startup H3Dpro is promising crowdfunders the ultimate keepsake, a miniature version of themselves.
For donations of $199 and up, the Belgian project's originators, Philippe Letellier and Fred Paulus, will come to a donor in their mobile H3Dpro studio and use a rig of cameras to create a full body 3D image, which will then be converted to a model and ultimately a figurine that the donor can keep. The setup is very similar to ShapeShot photo booths, but expanded to the entire body. The size of your donation ultimately decides the size of your figurine with donations of $1,000 dollars serving as a deposit/reservation on a 1:1 model.
Fred and Phil plan to use the funds to finish development of their modeling software before beginning their donor-to-donor trek in 2014. They say their so-called "human touch to crowdfunding" is perfect for "Sports clubs/enthusiasts, pro stars, young couples, parents, pensioners/retired persons, pets and anybody who would like to create a 3D figurine of his or her self, or a loved one."
So far, the project has raised $35 of its $157,000 dollar goal. If you have always wanted a minifig of yourself, or would just like to throw a few dollars their way, check out the project's page on Indiegogo.
