Had the chance to try out our new 3D Creator feature yet? Available on our XZ1, XZ1 Compact and XZ Premium, 3D Creator lets you scan and create 3D objects.

In the run up to the festive break, the Sony UK team headed to shopping centres in London and Manchester to give festive shoppers the chance to have their heads turned into baubles for their Christmas trees.

Naturally, we jumped at the chance when we received our invite and thought we’d share the final outcome.

As we arrived at Westfield shopping centre we were greeted by the Sony 3D Creator team who sat us down in the chair to be 3D scanned. Scans were taken of our faces from the shoulders up as we were talked through the app’s scanning process – the whole thing took less than five minutes.

Seven days later and here’s what arrived… We don’t know about you but we think it’ll make for a great Christmas tree decoration…or even a gift for Mum or Dad!

Check out our tips and tricks post to learn more about 3D Creator how to create your own 3D head.
