This year was no different with the Bellus3D camera stealing the show. It is a mobile device that makes accurate, full 3D scans of faces. It clips on to the top of an Android smartphone, and can make a realistic, high-resolution image of a person’s face in seconds.

Scanning a head is as easy as sitting in front of the camera within the displayed ring, and simply turning your head slowly left and right.

The camera takes about 20 seconds to process the scan, after which you’re presented with an image that can be panned and you can print them for stunningly realistic and unnerving 3D masks.

The face scanner is still a prototype for now, but the company plans to release the device for around $300 at the end of 2017.
