Leave it to the Japanese to freak me out in just the right way. I mean consider all the other things that they have made that freak me out like the horrific scene of being lifted from your bed as an elderly person by a semi real looking robot, or the horrific cute looking anime girl that then turns into cannibalistic demons that shoot lasers out of their eyes!!! With that being said welcome to the future Halloween hit for the Uber rich Spookster.
Buyers can get a 3D “face mask” for US$3,920 (additional copies cost just US$780 each). Each replica of one’s head costs US$5,875 (copies: US$1,960).
3D Printers have opened up the possibility for plenty of technological or fabricated materials and parts. Who would have thought….”Hey what about a copy of my face?”. And once again the future of humanity gets thrusted forward a few centimeters with such brilliance and innovation option of a new idea.
“A Japanese company called REAL-f [JP] is creating so-called 3DPFs (“3 Dimension Photo Forms”), copies of human faces “in 3D”. The startup offers two versions, a mask type replica and the so-called mannequin type, a replica of the head. The way it works is that REAL-f first shoots pictures of a person’s face from various positions and imprints the image on vinyl chloride resin stretched over a mold. According to the company, it’s unique production technology makes sure that even details like the iris and blood vessels are replicated accurately.”
