The Japanese company REAL-f prints 3D Photo Forms, eerily photorealistic 3D replicas of human faces in masks or complete plastic heads. The result is genuinely creepy. Prices start at about $ 3,900.
If you've ever dreamed of getting a super-realistic replica of your face for whatever reason, here's your chance: a Japanese company called REAL-f [JP] is creating so-called 3DPFs ("3 dimension Photo Forms"), copies of human faces "in 3D". The startup offers two versions, a replica mask type and the so-called mannequin type, a replica of the head.
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 accurately replicated (see the pictures to judge for yourself).
