I saw this in today's news: http://www.itworld.com/article/2837398/worlds-first-3d-full-body-scanning-booth-to-create-custom-you-figurines.html?google_editors_picks=true

Maybe this should be in the 3-D Printing thread but it's also a topic in its own right. If a machine can scan and produce something as complex and a person, what else could it do for modelers?

The reverse logic is that complex things are easier to do.  If something has few lines then they have to be perfect, while the more complicated something is the more mistakes can be overlooked.
