Doob 3D Could Replace the Photo Industry with Real-Life Sculptures

Doob 3D Could Replace the Photo Industry with Real-Life Sculptures

For cen­turies, peo­ple com­mis­sioned painters to cre­ate por­traits of them or their fam­i­lies to hang on the walls (if they could afford to do so). The inven­tion of pho­tog­ra­phy brought this lux­u­ry of self-admi­ra­­tion to the mass­es.  As cam­eras became com­mon­place every­one began snap­ping pho­tos at wed­dings, hol­i­days, and oth­er impor­tant events.

But like every­thing else in life, tech­nol­o­gy keeps rein­vent­ing and chang­ing how we do things. In this case, how we admire our­selves. After all, pho­tos are so last cen­tu­ry. It’s time we were able to admire our­selves in new and bet­ter ways. Doob 3D, a 3D print­ing com­pa­ny, agrees. The Dus­sel­­dorf-based busi­ness now has four 3D scan­ning booths set up in the US — two in New York and one each in…
