Dayton Mall Offers First 3D Selfies to Shoppers

Artec and Doppelganger Laboratories Feature Artec's Shapify 3D Body Scanning Booth

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/17/14 -- Artec Group, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional 3D software and hardware, and Doppelganger Laboratories, 3D technology and Services Company, bring Artec's 3D full body scanner, the Shapify Booth, to the Dayton Mall in Dayton, Ohio. The first-of-its-kind booth takes a full scan of a person in just 12 seconds, which is then 3D printed to create a full-color figurine called a "Shapie," all while mall visitors take care of their shopping.

Starting this week, Dayton Mall shoppers will be able to step inside a Shapify Booth to turn themselves into 3D figurines or "Shapies." "Shapies" are the next generation way to capture life's special moments like weddings, pregnancies and graduations.

When a customer steps inside the booth, four wide-view, high-resolution Artec scanners rotate around the person to scan from all angles. These high-powered precision scanners, used in the aerospace, medical and manufacturing fields to ensure quality control, are able to capture even the smallest details, down to wrinkles on clothes. Artec's sophisticated software then automatically stitches together the hundreds of generated images to create a full body 3D image file ready for 3D printing. The printed 3D figurines will be ready to pick up the next time a customer comes to the Dayton Mall to shop.

"We're very excited to announce our first US partnership for the Shapify booth," said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec Group. "The booth's installation at the Dayton Mall is a big step toward getting 3D technologies in the hands of the everyday consumer. Although 3D technology, specifically 3D printing, is seen in the news on a daily basis, it is not yet widely within reach of the average person. It's our hope that the Shapify Booth can change this by becoming many people's first interaction with 3D technologies."

The Shapify Booth is set to launch on Tuesday, November 18 at the Dayton Mall, 2700 Miamisburg Centerville Rd, Dayton, Ohio. The booth will be located in the center court.
