STARAMBA on Tour With Linkin Park

World tour world premier: 3D print specialist creates stars you can touch - and collect

BERLIN, August 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

STARAMBA USA Corp., the German-American technology start-up joint-venture, is bringing fans of Linkin Park closer to their idols than ever before: from 8 August to 19 September, the specialists in 3D body scanning and printing are joining the North American kick-off of their world tour "The Hunting Party". Across the 25 concert locations from West Palm Beach and Tampa, near Miami, to Montreal, Phoenix, Dallas and L.A., right through to Concord, near San Diego, fans can have themselves scanned for exclusive 3D selfies - mini statues - made of themselves, the band members, or even of themselves together with the band members.  Whether with frontman Chester Bennington or lead guitarist Brad Delson: an unforgettable memory of the event, in the form of a figurine at a scale of 1:20 up to 1:5, will be delivered to your home by courier shortly after the concert experience.

High-end technology for maximum authenticity  

So far, Linkin Park's 3D offering is internationally unique, as is the technology used for it. To achieve the best possible quality and authenticity, STARAMBA relies on a high-end solution: for the first time, mobile body scanners are being used, which work on the same principles as photogrammetry.  The two mobile "Scannerdomes" are controlled via the internet and are comprised of hundreds of individual computer lenses.  They will be based at every concert location in a truck with the Linkin Park and STARAMBA logo.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure.
