On a side note, I love the Disney movie TRON! The evil MCP used a transporter to digitized and imprison Flynn in the memory banks of a computer where he was to compete in the games until his eventual de-resolution.
In an earlier project, I used our Handy Scan 3D laser scanner to generate a digital representation of a potato. The work was for an Architecture student who wanted to reproduced the model using a starch material in a z310 rapid prototyping machine; the irony! Other strange projects include rusty dented car hoods, trash bag full of Elmer's glue and play doe in the form of X's and O's. I have no idea what the 3D models were used for but sometimes it is best not to ask.
