At CES 2016 3D Plus Me revealed its collection of custom figures which take the characters of your face and the body of a superhero including Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Jedi, Iron Man and many more. They call it as the Super Awesome Me lineup of mini-figurines and to get one for yourself you’ll have to purchase it through Kiosks at participating retailers.


You’ll have to get your face scanned at the Kiosk and make your choice of hair and the figure. After making the payment your 3D printed superhero figure will be delivered at home. It will cost your around $60 USD to get the 3D printed superhero mini-figure and you can learn more by jumping to their website.

# Shapify

All you have to do is stand in your intend style at the Shapify booth and a scanner takes 12 seconds to access all the data to later create a 15cm tall 3D printed mini-figure of you.
