Face scanning made simple

3D-rendering machine doesn't come cheap

Breuckmann

This certainly beats trying to copy your face on a Xerox machine.

"FaceSCAN III" is a 1.4-megapixel scanning system that uses a halogen lamp to create 3D facial renderings for "online games, avatars and everything narcissistic," as Red Ferret says. Its manufacturer, Germany-based Breuckmann, says FaceSCAN "offers maximum cost-effectiveness"--though the last version reportedly cost nearly $60,000. Everything's relative.

There's just one feature that struck us as somewhat odd: The device is "capable of capturing up to three persons simultenously." Is there some new trend we're missing?
