3D Systems today announced the immediate availability of its new generation of 3DMe Photobooth, which brings the full 3DMe experience to retail spaces and events. Always a popular attraction at events around the country, this revamped version includes an attractive user interface and is fine-tuned for easier point-of-sale, revenue reporting, and user experience.

3DMe Photobooth uses 3D imaging technology to capture an instant, photo-realistic facial image. Users can put their face on seasonal and branded collections of customisable 3DMe figurines, including characters from "Ghostbusters" and "Walking Dead." Utilising Photobooth's state-of-the-art technology, users can play animations of their personalised character, social share and order 3D-printed full colour figurines—all within minutes from the Photobooth kiosk.

For owners, the latest version of 3DMe Photobooth adds upon the kiosk's consumer popularity, integrating enhanced operating features that make it even easier to maintain and operate. A new point-of-sale (POS) system allows on-site purchasing with a credit card reader, and included revenue tracking systems help owners pinpoint trends. Even the shipping and packing of the unit are streamlined. In minutes, after unpacking the 3DMe Photobooth, vendors can be attracting customers and generating revenue.

In addition, the new 3DMe Photobooth's skin can be customised for improved visibility and branding. 3DMe Photobooth's content can also be refreshed based on brands and seasons, so vendors can provide the free content and styles that attract new and returning consumers.

"We're excited for the new opportunities that 3DMe Photobooth brings to retail and event spaces for increased foot traffic, recurring revenue, and for the joy it brings users," said Peter Theran, Vice President of Global Consumer Products, 3DS. "3DMe Photobooth is always hugely popular with consumers, and now it's easier for owners, too. It's a win for everyone."

3DMe Photobooth will have 12 language options and is available through authorised 3D Systems resellers and distributors.
