Eine Firma modelliert Föten aus Ultraschallbildern und druckt die auf 'nem 3D-Drucker aus. Die Idee kommt selbstverständlich aus Japan. Von Geekosystem:

Japanese engineering company Fasotec is now helping spruce up the mantle over your fireplace by offering “Shape of an Angel,” a 3D-printed replica of your fetus while it was in the womb. The process of making the 3D-printed replica is fairly simple as far as 3D printing goes. The fetus is photographed using an MRI, then run through 3D imaging software and sent to the 3D printer. White resin is used to make the fetus, and clear resin is used to make the mother’s womb, and the positioning and appearance of the model fetus matches that of the actual fetus.
