Paper-Kit turn 2D portraits into 3D models

Paper-Kit have developed a system to use a 2D printout to turn yourself into a full 3D model.

The first process is to upload some photos taken from left, right and front sides of your head. The software automatically maps that into a 3D polygonal model which can be tuned perfectly so eyes, ears, nose and mouth all match up.

The software flattens the model and generates a PDF file that costs only $2 to download. This is printed to make the 3D model. The only issue is currently long hair, as the software can’t handle ponytails and other styles.

The finished paper model looks fairly realistic, almost like a 10 year old computer game representation of a person and ideal for special events or funny parties!
