Tokyo to host first 3D printing photo booth
Holidaymakers heading to the cultural hub of Tokyo over the next couple of months could be in for a treat with the city hosting the world's first ever 3D printing photo booth.

This unique technological contraption works much like a standard photo booth with users simply stepping inside and saying cheese as the camera does its magic.

Only, as Spoon-Tamago reports, this is no ordinary camera, with the system designed to explicate 3D objects, in much the same way as a standard photocopy.

The result is a unique miniature version of yourself - much like owning your very own action figure.

Those keen to sample this super cool technology can do so at the Eye of Gyre exhibition space in Harajuku.

Available from November 24th through to January 14th next year, reservations to use the unique photo booth can be made at the official website, with users able to choose from three distinctive sizes of model.

Flying to Japan is becoming an increasingly accessible prospect for UK travellers, with Dutch carrier KLM offering services to Tokyo along with Osaka and Fukoka.
