As part of its Star Wars Weekends event (running from May 17 to June 9), Disney is giving fans the chance to put their face on a 3D-printed Stormtrooper figurine The D-Tech Me experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios uses a high resolution single-shot 3D face scanner created by Disney Research labs.
