Mini Me

A leading UK supermarket has launched 3D miniatures for people, of themselves.
Anyone seeking the perfect grandparents' gifts will be thrilled at the news, which means customers can go to an Asda store and order a mini version of themselves that's picture perfect.
There are 10 Asda stores across the UK with the capability, including Manchester Trafford Park, Liverpool, Edinburgh, York, Havant, Watford, Milton Keynes, Coventry, Cardiff and Swindon.

Re: Mini Me

Another gift to make Grandparents cringe.
Just like making a present out of a family photo.

Re: Mini Me

I'm sure I heard of that 3d-printed mini-me thing a couple of years back, probably on the ol' beeb news...
