Mini me statuesTHE residents of an entire village in Jaen have been turned into 3D printed statues.

All 318 people living in Torrequebradilla have been shrunk down by Spanish technology company Grupo Sicnova.

Placed in a giant scanner, every villager was given their very own mini-me that very same day.

With their CloneScan3D scanner, the Jaen-based company can capture and create a 3D replica of a person in less than two minutes.

They claim that creating a 3D statue is now ‘as easy as taking a photograph’.

3D printing is becoming more popular, with companies looking to print everything from car parts to weapons.
