President Obama's 3D Portrait is Spookily Realistic 

By Kate Knibbs on at

The Smithsonian recently created a 3D portrait of President Obama, using 50 custom-made LED lights, eight hi-res sports photography cameras, and six wide angle cameras to capture every nook, cranny, and worry line on Obama's head. The result is the highest resolution digital model of any head of state in the world, so suck on that, Merkel!

The technology has rendered Obama so vividly that I'm kind of worried Robert Zemeckis is going to try to insert the president in his next creepy motion capture 3D IMAX thing, Polar Express 2: Executive Orders, or something like that.[Stefan Becket]
