To promote their line of mini coke bottles, Coca-Cola Israel put together a contest where fans of Coke could try and win a 3-D printed mini version of themselves (people could download an app where they would construct their own “Mini-Me” versions via different virtual outfits and backgrounds and sending the pics to Coke where the winners would be chosen).
Those winners were then put into a 360 degree scanner and a 3-D mini version of themselves popped out from the printer to their delight.
Sounds cool right?
So why don’t we here in the US get shit like this? Are we only worthy of a smudgy code on the bottom of a bottle cap that we then have to go online to find out if we won something stupid?
Do you know what I would do to get a 3-D version of myself printed?
The same thing I usually do for a mixed drink…and it ain’t pretty.
But I’ll do it…I swear.
