Creepy 3D Printing: Get a Replica of Your Unborn Fetus
And now for something extremely creepy.
Japanese firm Fasotec is offering expectant parents “Shape of an Angel,” a miniature 3D print of their unborn fetus.
The fetus is first photographed using MRI and the resulting image data processed using special 3D software. A 3D printer is then used to construct the model, using clear resin for the mother’s body and white resin for the fetus. The position, posture and appearance of the baby appear exactly as it does in the mother’s uterus.
Parents looking to have their own “Shape of an Angel” taken will need to visit the Parkside Hiroo Ladies Clinic and should be prepared to pay the 100,000 yen (US $1,230) price is costs for a single 90x60x40mm model.
