Just like a photobooth, you can memorialize silly faces, candid moments or fabulous poses of you and your crew. But instead of a flat picture of yourself, we put together the contemporary predecessor to the photobooth where participants can get a 3-dimensional replica of their poses from all angles! Add a little Valentines spirit, and the 3D Printing Kissing Booth was born.

We set up the 3-day pop-up event at the fun and fashionable Untitled & Co storefront on Toronto’s Queen Street West, and collaborated with Draft Print 3D for the 3D printing 3D scanning extravaganza! With the same equipment used for our Candy Hacking Project, we brought something that was done with our custom projects to the public for the first time. Participants got a chance to check out some 3D printers in action, get scanned for free, and choose to get their scans 3D printed as a statuette, bobble head, necklace or ring!
A big thank you goes out to our collaborators and all the awesome, excited people who came out to the event and shared with us a little piece of yourselves. We’re definitely hoping to do more of this, so look out!
