Cardboard cutouts are so '90s

Is it just us, or is $379 not that much money to spend for an action figure that looks just like you?

If you didn’t already think 3D printing is amazing, consider this: a company called Twinkind can use the latest in 3D scanning and printing tech to produce a life-like figurine of you, your dog or your mum. You can buy them in different sizes, from 15cm to 35cm.

Oh, but you’ll have to show up to your appointment in Germany. Maybe it’s not so cheap after all.
