Best Buddies part 2...

Why take selfies when you can print out a 3D miniature copy of yourself?

3D printing color figures of yourself is threatening to become a trend—in Japan last year designers PARTY opened a temporary 3D printing photo booth In a Tokyo gallery where people could turn up, get scanned, and walk away with a mini-figurine of themselves. And now, following on from that, comes Twinkind who are offering a similar service, but these guys are based in Germany.

Much like the photo booth in Japan Twinkind is a temporary pop up studio, so will only be open for a limited time in Hamburg. The scanning happens very fast, "in the blink of an eye" according to their website, and uses a multi-camera setup to get maximum detail—and you can even take your pet along to get scanned and printed too.

But it doesn't come cheap, starting at around $300 for a 15cm figurine and going up to $1700 for a 35cm one, which is actually an unnervingly large size for a figurine of yourself. Give it a few years and they'll be one of these studios on every street corner (I hope).

Michele Bachmann discovers Tumblr and posts a pic of the latest House vote to repeal Obamacare


The House just passed my bipartisan Obamacare repeal bill.

(Oh, and welcome to my new Tumblr!)

Rep Mark Takano (D-CA) responds:


It's been nice knowing all of you...

See you all on the other side.

I am lying to you right now.

And everything else that I'll say in this OP will be a lie.

Even this very sentence that you're currently reading is, itself, a lie.

How would know that I'm telling you the truth when I say that everything that I'll tell you will be a lie?
