Omote 3D Shashin Kan is the world’s first 3D portrait studio that uses a handheld scanner to produce a three-dimensional scale model of your entire body, which is then sculpted into a intricate plastic figurine.

It’s hard to call it a downside, but 3D printing isn’t exactly a instantly gratifying process and the models take about a month to complete.
