A company names 3D Babies is now offering to turn 4D ultrasounds into 3D-printed sculptures of unborn babies for parents, relatives, or anyone who can’t wait to hold the real thing in their hands. The life-size printouts appear to arrive nestled in a coffin-like satin-lined box, at a cost of $600.
3D Babies is not the first company to offer to give you a plastic copy of your offspring. Back in March, Cracked highlighted a Japanese company that would entomb a 3D-printed resin copy of your baby in a clear block of plastic, like an ancient mosquito in so much amber.
Printouts from 3D Babies, however, arrive in plain air, with an unnatural papier-mâché sheen and an artificial flush to their cheeks. The babies can come in three colors—light, medium, or dark—can be positioned one of two ways. Customers must specify the gender.
