The photo booth doesn’t work like a traditional photo booth, however. Each “image” takes 15-minutes to capture, which means that elaborate or complicated poses are probably not on the menu. After the image is taken, it can then be adjusted to refine the detail. Limitations in the technology means that stiletto heels, shiny jewelry, fuzzy scarves or other finely detailed elements can’t be rendered, but if you want an army of mini figures, you can purchase multiple reproductions.

The pop-up booth is opening in the Eye of Gyre [6] exhibition space in the Harujuku district of Tokyo [7]. Prints cost anywhere from $265 to $530, depending on the size. The Omote 3D photo booth will open as a pop-up store [8] from late November to mid-January, so if you want your very own mini-me figure, make your reservations quickly.
