Get a 3D selfie at University of Luxembourg

3D selfie You can take your "digital selfie" home and possibly win a 3D-statue of yourself

Do you want or maybe even need a 3D “digital selfie” or a 3D-statue of yourself? Then the Belval campus of the University of Luxembourg could be your place to be.

Scientists at the University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) are working on the next breakthrough in 3D scanning technology, and they need volunteers.

From April to July 2017 a 3D full body scanner will be installed in the cafeteria on the first floor of the Maison du Savoir in Belval.

Staff, students and anyone interested can volunteer to be scanned from head to toe. The data gathered will allow scientists from the SnT to develop new mathematical methods for modelling the human body shape in 3D.

The full scanning process takes around 15 minutes per person and volunteers go home with a 3D digital selfie and electronic access to their 3D data.

There is also a monthly competition for volunteers to win a 3D-printed statue of themselves.
