The Japanese sure know how to take science and technology to the extreme. For instance, engineering company Fasotec and an ob/gyn clinic have partnered together so that they can make a 3-D image of your unborn baby! Sure to make a spooky baby shower present, if you ask me!
Its one thing to gush over a sonogram, but imagine holding a resin replica of your unborn child in your hand, can be a bit intimidating for some. Apparently Fasotec uses an MRI to create the 3-D image and will set you back by 100,000 Yen (about $1,250).
A resin model of a white fetus encased in a clear uterus is created using 3-D printing technology. Taking advantage of 3-D printing in industrial design or for products that need precision engineering is understandable, but using it for this is hovering over the boundary line of abuse of technology. What do you think? Will you like a 3-D model of your babe-in-the-womb?
