Make a 3D Photo Booth for GIF-y Memories

The typical photo booth experience goes something like this: press button, contort your otherwise beautiful face into odd shapes, and wait.

You know exactly what’ll pop out. But what if the booth spit out something totally unexpected?

Like a Kit Kat bar? Or a THREE-DEE photo!!

That’s exactly what the Protobooth delivers.

Design firm, Digital Kitchen, made a DIY 3D photo booth out of three Canon 5D MarkIIs and four Macbook Pros.

With a little hackery know-how, they shot animated photo booth photos that wiggle to-and-fro and make you feel like you’re really there … all over again! (See their behind-the-scenes.)

To make your own 3D setup with stuff you already own, check out our 3D how-to. No hackery needed!
