Personalization trend: Hyper-real 3D-printed figurines

More and more, people want things that are unique and made just for them. Examples of this include NikeID, where you can create customized sneakers, and MyHeinz, where you can create customized ketchup labels. That's why something that is extremely personalized, like a 3D-printed mini me is so alluring. A little creepy, but alluring. TwinKind creates stunningly detailed figurines that you can hold in your hands and observe from any angle. In other words, custom-made mini twins. 3D photo figurines freeze a moment in your life. Whether it's a family portrait, a proud mother and her newborn baby, or a snapshot of your dog. The result is a photorealistic polymer plaster sculpture measuring 6 to 14 inches (15 to 35 centimeters) tall.
