Shoppers at a supermarket in Manchester can get a 'mini-me' made up before they get their weekly shop. Asda in Trafford have installed a full body scanner to create 3D replicas from thousands of images taken in just 12 seconds.
A few days later the customer can then pick up an 8in exact replica of themselves with every tiny detail exactly etched in porcelain at the price of 60.
The scanner was created by the Artec group and the two million pound technology has been use by Nasa, doctors and architects.
The scanner will be Asda in Trafford until June 22, and if successful could lead to a roll-out across 10 stores this summer.
