New 3D Babies Modeled After Ultrasounds
Have you heard about the new startup that creates 3D baby models based on your ultrasound or baby photos? The fledgling company markets their product as a way to meet your baby before it’s born.
The founders of the company admitted they had a hard time remembering their children when they were first born…how small they really were and what the looked like. They came up with the idea for 3D Babies. The idea was to come up with a baby doll that looked like their children at that age.
Right now 3D Babies is in its fundraising phase. The company uses technology available through 3D printers to create lifelike baby dolls based on your actual 3D or 4D ultrasound or baby photos. According to their website, their “ultimate goal is to bring a smile to the faces of parents, grandparents, and other family members as they recall the day that they met their little one.”
You have to admit, it is a unique idea. Parents can select from a life size (eight-inch) or a mini (four-inch) doll with a choice of three skin tones: light, medium, dark. The baby doll’s face is modeled after the submitted photo, and the baby’s gender can be displayed or discreetly hidden. I think this has the potential to be even more embarrassing than those bathtub photos.
Right now the company hopes to launch and begin production of 3D Babies in December. Could make a really unique Christmas gift! At this time, the company is accepting $1.00 donations for those who want to be kept up-to-date on the project’s progress. A $25 military donation guarantees an active military family will receive a free 3D baby.
Some people might think this is kind of creepy, but really it’s just a different form of baby picture. I think it’s unique and better than a pair of bronzed baby booties. What do you think?
