Miniature Moments Turns Photos into Detailed 3D Miniatures

Miniature Moments is a new service that uses 3D printing to turn photographs into 3D resin “miniatures”. The small passport photo-sized creations measure 46mm x 37mm, and don’t look very impressive until they’re held up to light. Once it’s illuminated from behind, then it turns into a highly detailed photograph that resembles developed film.

Here’s a video that offers a look into how each one is made:

You can buy one through the Miniature Moments website for $40.

    I don’t know what country you’re from with such tiny passports, but they look seem postage stamp sized to me. ;) #corrections

    Ahh, good catch. Passport-sized for people who live in Miniland, and passport photo-sized  for everyone else

    Shapeways.com offers a similar service with bigger photo’s and results.

  • Seriously

    I think you need to start valuing content and integrity rather than advertising revenue.

    Are you suggesting that we’re getting paid to post things?

    I can assure you that even though many companies have approached us regarding it, we’ve never taken a dime for a post/tweet/FB post. Ask any of our advertisers what we’ve said was available to them if you don’t believe me.
