Immortalize your happy little seedling forever with a 3D-printed replica of your fetus encased in white resin. Japanese engineering company Fasotec are behind this “Shape of an Angel”—that’s what they called it—product. 

According to Geekosystem 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.”

I’m not necessarily sure how one is supposed to display the “Shape of an Angel,” but it sure looks like it would make an interesting paperweight.

“Hey, your baby looks just like Mark E. Smith…” is probably not something a lot of parents want to hear. Some, but not most.

A small collection of MES look-alikes can be found here.

Thanks, Syd Garon!

God’s Little Preemie Dolls

The disclaimer at the God’s Little Ones reads: “Warning if you have had an abortion or miscarriage this page may be hard to view.  If you choose to proceed you may want a tissue box near by.”  The site also feature dolls in various stages of “gestation.”  The photo below shows dolls ranging from eight to eighteen weeks.

And while it might be true that we’re all created in His image, “creation” costs more for some of us than others: “Models available in pink, tan and brown skin tones others available upon request add $10.00 for brown as it is a more expensive pigment.”
