Appreciate art? ditto Like tech? ditto Love fun? ditto Ditto is the fun of realistically, and artistically, recreating yourself in 3D. Remember an occasion, achievement, or special person. Collect a whole sports team, your hero, or a precious pet. Why? Because you can. What you can do, is endless. Our mobile scanning booth (technology exclusive in NZ) takes less than a second to capture a second you. Once you have your high definition 3D images, you can have fun using them online, and printing beautiful impression full-colour figurines. Give memories substance. Make moments stand out. Ditto is all-round fun, for all.
