Shapify is enabling Kinect owners to create and print a 3D action figure of themselves. Customers can upload a model and print themselves or order one.

The company utilizes the magic of Kinect and 3D printing to create small action figures of anyone. To create and purchase your own you'll need a Kinect, a PC and Shapify's software.

The Kinect is used to take a 3D image of you, in a striking pose if you so choose, which the company uses to create a model at 1/20th of your actual height. If you are striking a pose, you'll need to choose one that you can repeat eight times as you have to turn around during the process.

You can then 3D print your figurine or fill out a form on Shapify's website to order your 3D printed figurine. To find out more about the process, check out the Introduction video.
