At Wetpaint Moms, we try to keep an open mind. We believe that all art is subjective, and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So whether we’re reporting on things like umbilical cord art, a horror photog dad who features his kids in his questionable pieces, or the questionably artistic use of bodily fluids, we feel that we’re doing our readers a service.
The latest item to cross our desks is definitely in the realm of subjective art. A new company is offering moms the ability to get 3D sculptures made of their fetuses. The company harnesses the power of 3D printing technology to capture your fetus via your 3D ultrasound photos, and then create a lifelike 3D doll. The company promises to capture your baby's “original facial features and body position.”
Parents choose the details of the sculptures via a “proprietary process” in which they get to select fetus size, skin tone, position (with gender reveal, or not!), and exact facial expression modeled after photos submitted by the parents.
3D Babies is currently still in the fundraising phase, but their website says that they are hoping for launch in December 2013, just in time for Christmas! What better time to purchase what the company says is sure to become “a treasured family heirloom?” To make the company a reality, 3D Babies is currently soliciting contributions in any amount, so get out those credit cards!
