The BobbleShop Turns Guests into 3-D Bobbleheads
The BobbleShop (Booth #419) uses a compact 3-D-imaging camera—the EasyTwin Scanner—to capture images of customers’ heads and then craft them into 3-D bobblehead figurines.
But that’s just the beginning: The BobbleShop system allows customers to customize their captured 3-D headshot on a screen and lets them to select what kind of fun figurine the bobblehead will be connected to.
“Your very accurate features are put onto these 3-D characters,” said The BobbleShop’s Marvin Seligman.
A 2-D bobblehead photo is printed on site for the customer, while the image and an animated video (with theming connected to the park) is e-mailed to the customer for sharing on social media. The 3-D bobblehead is mailed to the customer in about 10 days.
The BobbleShop capture station/printer is available as an installed kiosk, or a portable model for use at parties and special events.
