Vote: Are 3D Selfies the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 11.26.2017 interact

 

This week’s Next Big Thing is making old-fashioned selfies a thing of the past. A company called Doob has developed a technology that turns images into 3D replicas of you. Here’s how it works — you walk into a 3D scanner called the dooblicator, which takes 54 pictures of you simultaneously. It then uses the images to make a 3D model of you and the results is a 3D print of a miniature lifelike figure.

So what do you think — are 3D selfies the Next Big Thing? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. Or submit your video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    I think that this is a great thing. You can door all your pets and if they get lost, you can show a 3D image of them. Maybe you could also doon your family members, and if they get lost, you could show a mini figure of them.

  3. Faith

    Yes that would be amazing you can capture the special moments.

    I think 3-D selfies are the next big thing because it would be cool to have a miniature size of you. Plus if you want to get a present for someone then it would be a nice cool thing to get them.

    I think it would be cool if I can have one I would dab.

    I think 3D selfies are the next big thing. Blind people have the opportunity to see their friends or family, and they could look cute around the house. You can always see the shape of someone’s face, which means you’ll always have them close no matter what.

    I think the idea of this is cool. But with the 3D picture AND having the model made it would be too much money! So, no. I don’t think 3D selfies are The Next Big Thing.

  10. Zoe

    I think the idea is cool. But it would cost way too much money!

    I think 3d selfies are NOT the next big thing because it waste people money and it cost too much beside people should spend there money for useful thing not things that go to a Attic

    I think they are the next big thing.
    Have you ever wanted to have a toy that looked just like you?
    With the 3D selfie you can!
    Also you could take a 3D selfie of you in a santa costume and you could place it on the mantel and bring holiday Joy

    I don’t think that 3D selfies are the next big thing because I would want to get my own 3D printer and do it myself.

  14. Noah

    Shout out to Mrs. Rusk!!!!

  15. ethan wilbanks

    I think 3D selfies are the Next Big Thing, because you can make any moment last forever.

  16. Dewey

    I think that 3D printers are already enough money why spend the extra money to get a 3D printed person of your self!!

  17. David Lashbrook

    Yes, because we can use the 3D selfies for picture day, and we can do our own poses.
