Supermarket 'mini-me' scanner launches in Manchester

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.

The customer can then pick up an 8" exact replica of themselves a few days later, with every tiny detail exactly etched in porcelain.
