The White House teamed up with the Smithsonian to make an exact 3D replica of President Barack Obama.
A video released by the White House on Tuesday showed Smithsonian staffers using scanners, cameras, and computer programs to obtain measurements that were used to make a 3D-printed bust of President Barack Obama.
In order to make the 3D presidential portrait, Obama sat in front of a "mobile light stage" with 50 customized LED lights that replicated multiple different lighting conditions. While Obama sat there, he was photographed by multiple cameras. Smithsonian staffers also used handheld 3D scanners.
Here is the video.
