WATCH: Amazing 3D printed bust of Obama being made

Share

How did we miss this last month? Painting and sculpture is soooo last century. If you want to record the President’s likeness now, what you need is some 3D cameras and an array of GoPros.

Check out this video showing how the President’s face was scanned in immense detail, in many different lighting conditions – and how easily the company behind it were then able to create a 3D-printed bust.

It’s hugely impressive, and shows what modern technology is capable of. But more importantly… when is it our turn?
