Gift shop souvenirs always seem so cheesy. Half the time they’ve got the same novelties and books that you could buy online for half the price anyway. But Barcelona-based blablabLAB has come up with a much more unique and personal way to capture memories when you visit someplace new. Be Your Own Souvenir uses Xbox Kinect sensors and a 3D printer to create mini figures based on a scan of a real person. Visitors stand on a platform and pose and a few moments later they have a cool souvenir of themselves. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Kinect being used to make 3D figures, but it is the first time we’ve seen anything like this out on the streets.
