Have you ever been into a Looxis3D store? ->
Actually, as I think about it, the Looxis scanner might be pretty good
-- it faithfully captured my father-in-law's straw hat that he was
wearing as he was scanned. In Graz, Austria.

But, there are some competing concerns whose scanners are much worse.

There exist some very 'cheesy' (E.g., not very accurate) Methods for
mapping a photograph of a person's face onto a 3D mesh,
which makes extreme assumptions about the structure of human faces, in
general -- not the actual 3D geometry of a specific person's face. They
are using these methods to construct 2- and 3-view "mugshots" (front and
profile views) from security camera images.

Big Brother is reconstructing you.
