Obama in 3-D

Recognize him? It's a 3-D printed bust of US President Barack Obama. Last year he became the first US president to be scanned using 3-D technology as part of his drive to promote hi-tech innovations. The bust goes on display at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC for Presidents Day weekend from 13 to 16 February. CLICK for a larger graphic.

Can a 3D copy show the soul of the sitter? Probably not.

It can't even get his skin colour right. He's as grey as his suit. So, no soul as yet. That will take a great artist or a great photographer. Madame Tussauds is the best we have in the modern age. They do it with calipers and make up.
