Be your own Souvenir..

This is a seriously cool digital installation based in La Rambla, Barcelona, a place made famous by street artists posing as those crazy “human sculptures” along with the tens of thousands of tourists who come to see those street performers stand… still… 

The crew at blablablab.org gathered to reverse the roles, developing a digital meets real world art installation, allowing tourists to become their own souvenir! Using openFrameworks and openKinect, in combination with 3 Xbox Kinect’s, the installation delivered a 360 degree point cloud that could then be extruded in real time with a 3D printer… 

The real opportunity here, is for brands to be among the first to leverage this type of technology. Spare 3D printer anyone? So… Who should be doing this kind of installation?
