3D Printer Makes Exact Model of Your Fetus, Is Not Creepy at All
August 15, 2012
Are you an expectant parent who just can't wait 9 whole months to hold your baby in your hands? No problem!.A Japanese clinic is now using 3D printing technology to create exact models of babies while they're still in the womb. Using a "Bio-Texture" process and MRI scans, the clinic creates a 3D model of the mother's fetus and womb. The "Shape of an Angel" service costs $1,276, not including the cost of the MRI.
"We actually got three expectant mothers to try this out. They said it felt great to see how their babies looked before birth, and to be able to actually hold the inside of their own body," a representative said. "They also enjoyed looking at the model after giving birth, thinking, 'This is how my baby looked inside me' and recalling how it felt to be pregnant."
