From California comes news that Artec Group, a specialist in 3D technologies and hand-held 3D scanners, has unveiled a new service. Called, this service enables people – using Microsoft Kinect for Windows or Kinect for XBox 360 – to scan themselves, upload the scan to the website and be sent a miniature figurine of themselves (in 1/20th scale).  


While there are many possible uses for this new technology, its launch has probably come a little too late this year for it to be seen as a viable alternative to that time-honoured office Christmas party jape which involves the misuse of the office photocopier.

Season’s greetings to all Bob’s Blog readers!
