In addition to the vacation photos, I can also see more industrial designers and artists using this technology to quickly capture CAD data of their 3D models or sculptures.

Printing souvenirs or other things is a great idea. I like the idea that someone is making it easier create the CAD files. One could take a pic of your child and print them a 3d doll.

I like the vacation idea; the great pyramid, Taj Mahal, why not relatives? I fear it also makes reverse engineering very, very easy.

What a novel idea (and I don't mean it sarcastically): printing your own souvenirs from your vacation pix, after touching them up in CAD. Or for that matter, taking pictures of things around you (like redwood trees or other objects in nature). That gives me ideas for new materials and I wonder if anyone's working on them for 3D apps: ones that resemble natural substances, like wood or stone, and less like plastic.

Taking a picture and printing your own souvenirs--now that would be a real money saver for tourists, not to mention a huge opportunity to create a service that could be monetized. Cool idea.

One nice thing about using aCAD program to "print" 3D images on your home 3D printer is that you can "fix them up" before printing them.  Another nice thing is that you wouldn't have to bring home souveniors, you could just take a picture (lots of pictures) and print them later.  Lots lighter on the luggage.
