Why Settle for Instagram When You Can Turn Your Selfie Into a Figurine?

Move over, Barbie: Now you can turn your selfie into a doll of a figurine

Taking selfies for Instagram is sooo last season.

Today the truly tech-savvy, with, dare we say, ego-maniacal tendencies, are taking the self-portrait to the next level, bypassing Instagram and going straight to pint-sized 3-D figurines.

Yes, you can now order a mini you for $79.

According to Glamour, it’s all thanks to Shapify.me, an app created by the Russian Artec Group, that uses Microsoft Kinect technology to create a 3-D scan of yourself.

Once you're happy with your selfie scan, simply upload it via the site, order, and in about a week, you’ll receive your figurine, sized at one-20th your actual size, or about four inches high.

Barbie? You better alert Skipper and Ken, because your dream house is about to get a new roommate.
