Christmas is just around the corner and for just $3,920 you can get a really creepy and uber-realistic mask of your own face. And if you want to get crazier you can pay $5,875 for a replica of your entire head.
Japan never ceases to surprise me!
A Japanese company called REAL-f is creating so-called 3DPFs (“3 Dimension Photo Forms”), copies of human faces “in 3D”.
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.
