You got to give it to the Japanese. On one hand, conservative suit-wearing workaholics. On the other hand, the most wacky, creative guys around.

So now, a 3-Dimensional photo booth. You go in, get a picture taken and out comes a 3-dimensional action figure of yourself. It’s not cheap (prices will range between 21,000 to 42,000 yen  or approximately US$264 to US$529) but I can see prices coming down as adoption goes up and in a matter of a couple of years, this will be commonplace.

Personally, I think it’s way cool.

It’s a pop-up store for now and it will open on November 24 in the Eye of Gyre exhibition space in Harajuku and run until January 14, 2013.

Called Omote 3D, the official site is here (in Japanese).
