Creepy: Company Will 3D Print A Replica Of Your Unborn Fetus

3d-printed-fetus-1

We ran a story similar to this over a year ago but this product is slightly different. A company called 3D Babies will ask you to send them between 1 and 5 ultrasound images of your baby and they’ll create a 3D replica which “resembles” your fetus. Given the fact that the 3D print is based on customer submitted images, we’ll really emphasize “resemble” as we don’t except the accuracy to be very high. $200 will get you a small, $400 a medium and $600 a “full-size” 8 inch print. 8 inches apparently being the average size of a 23-24 week old fetus. You can also pick two, uh, poses. Either in fetal position or with arms and legs outstretched.

There’s no contortion of reason that will make this be anything but utterly creepy to us. But what do we know? 3D printing is revolutionizing the world (in a manner), but no one said it would always remain on the good size of the creep zone.

And if you don’t believe our reservations, hit the jump for a bunch more pictures that should drive the point home.

Ultrasound Device Checks Your Propane Levels

truma-propane-levelcheck-xl

If you’re enjoying the summer, there is a chance you’re using the inferior BBQing method known as the propane grill. Aside from it being a well known fact that cooking with propane is inferior to charcoal, you also have to deal with fill levels on your tank. How do you know it’s empty? You can knock on it, shake it, or lift it… all in an effort to figure out how much is left. Or, you can spend $90 and get the Truma LevelCheck. It’s a dead simple device that uses ultrasounds to check for liquids. Press it against the side of the tank, and an LED will tell you what’s on the other side: green means liquid, red, no liquid.
