DIGITAL ME. See your own replica in 3D !

Visitors can start to explore 3D by first creating their “Digital Me” persona the moment they step into the 3D Scanning Booth. Using eight high-precision scanners developed by TianYuan 3D Scanner company – the leading 3D Scanner company in China – visitors will create an exact replica of themselves in 3D. After creating their “Digital Me”, visitors have the choice of three different ways to output themselves by using 3D Printing, 3D Augmented Reality, or upload to a 3D Virtual World.
