Life in 3D
I didn’t even know how deep my need to be memorialized in miniature was until I saw this. Last week Slate posted a short video (can be seen here) about a grocery retailer in the UK that is manufacturing 3d self-figurines for $64 and just in time for the holidays. The results are incredibly lifelike (one man even had his figurine made to keep his wife company in the nursing home). A little research revealed that the Brits aren’t the only ones doing it either.
Check out these amazing 3d self-figurines from German company, Twinkind. Move over Barbie, there’s a new doll in town. Or could this be the modern-day version of the bronze bust? All I know is that I want to order 3D figurines of everyone I know and possibly play with them in the bathtub.
What do you think – creepy or cool?
