The Royal Academy of Arts at London is all set to offer a unique experience to visitors in September. For the first time, ever visitors to the art gallery in London can see themselves just as they are. They have unveiled plans to provide visitors with a 3D sculpture of themselves. This cutting-edge technology is made possible with the help of powerful Chorographic scanner from Veronica. This extremely powerful scanner helps to analyze each and every detail on a person and replicate it as a 3D sculpture within minutes. Right from the tiny pimples and pores on your skin, to your attractive dimples everything will be replicated in the sculpture.
The scanner was initially developed by the Factum Foundation for uses in the medical field. Now it has been installed in the Royal Academy of Arts. Adam Lowe, founding director of the foundation who spoke at a press conference in the gallery said that for the first time people can get to know how they really look. He said that several people hated photographs as the two-dimensional images do not actually represent a person. However, these sculptures work to portray a person as they are without any subjectivity. He said that unlike sculptures that are subjective to the eye of the artist, the 3D sculptures are objective and present people as they are without missing out even the tiniest detail. He further stated these sculptures as portraits untouched by the hands of man.
The scanner was initially developed to aid cosmetic surgeons in anti-ageing treatments to capture both before and after images with great accuracy. Visitors to the RA will also be able to watch other being photographed and turned into sculptures. Eight cameras have been installed to capture high-resolution photographs of the subject and the entire recording is completed within an astounding four seconds. Visitors can get their 3D portraits as a recording which can later be transformed into busts with 3D printers.
