This year, some people in Japan are getting a high-tech alternative to the family portrait: 3-D figurines of the family.

It all begins with a 3-D scanner shooting 15 minutes worth of images.

The end product, a figurine, does not come cheap. The small, 4-inch version cost about $250.

For now it's only available in Japan.
