3D photo figurines are a revolutionary way of freezing a moment in your life. Since Japanese company Omote 3D opened the first 3D printing photo booth, it is now so popular worldwide to get yourself immortalized through 3D scanning and 3D printing.

But have you ever imagined a true-to-life miniature version of yourself? Thanks to Twinkind, A pop-up shop in Hamburg, Germany, you can get a custom-made mini twins through state-of-the art 3D scanning and color printing technology.

Now you don't have to stand still for 15 or 20 minutes as in other 3D photo booth. According to the company, their 3D scanning process happens "in the the blink of an eye" - so easy and quick as being photographed. The company does not reveal more details: "Part of the technology is similar to what many know from the Matrix Effect. The multi-camera system is based on photogrammetry principles." writes Twinkind.

Twinkind has a studio that you can walk in (Pre-booking is required), and choose your scaling and options and get ready for the lightning-fast scan. Once the system has analyzed the shape of all visible details, your 3D model will be sent to a 3D printer - a Z-Corp and printed out using full color sandstone.

"Voxel by voxel, layer by layer, the three-dimensional portrait grows into the (almost) final product as if by magic." writes twinkind.

Prices depend on the scale of your figurine. There are 7 different scales to choose from, and heights are available from around 15cm to around 35cm. The smallest model, 15 cm tall, costs €225 ($300 / £191); and a 35cm model can cost €1,290 ($1,721 / £1,096).

Once your figurines production is perfect it is ready for shipping, in about 2-5 weeks. The only problem is probably that you have to visit Hamburg to get yourself scanned.
