From preserving tangible snapshots of that perfect make-up to capturing those unforgettable moments, these 3D printed dolls are kind of creepy yet amazing. These replicas of real life faces encapsulate those emotions and occasions in a world frozen in time.
From the land of the rising sun come the digital age of virtual human cloning, in which stunningly accurate replicas of faces are created using 3D sculpting technology. This ingeniously creative idea, made popular by Akihibara-based Clone Factory in Japan, uses several DSLR camera that take photos of the human face from different angles. Using a computer program, the pictures are combined into 3D data, which is then fed into a specialized printer that uses plaster and ink to mold the finished replicas. The result are a miniaturized yet perfectly similar plaster mold capturing even the smallest details and angles. The price for each work ranges around $1,300, a tad pricier than today’s modern contemporary paintings, but is indeed worth the cost if preserving that once in a lifetime event is a must.
