A Japanese company called Real-f has perfected a way to make a life like photocopy of your face or head, which you can then take home and hang on your wall. We’re assuming Real-f stands for “really freaky.”
For $3,900 Real-f will scan your face and produce a mask that is accurate down to the individual pores and eye vasculature. For an additional $2k they’ll also churn out a bust, though for additional copies the price drops significantly to $780 and $1,960 respectively – the scanning and digital mapping process is probably the most laborious and hence the most costly.
The digital images are printed on to an image on vinyl chloride resin stretched over a mold. While the effect is relatively stunning, it does give us that creepy feeling analogous to that of “The Chainsaw Massacre” or “Silence of the Lambs” movies.
