Using 3D Printers to Create Real Face Masks

REAL-f, a company in Japan is making real life masks for about $4,000. It uses 3-dimensional photo forms to make an exact replica of your face and turn it into a mask. You know, just in case you’re having a bad face day you can always pop one of these babies on and you’re good to go.

If you look at the image to the left, it looks freaking real, everything from eyebrow color and feel, down to your freckles. If you want to have the FULL effect then you probably want to buy the full head, which will cost you about $6,000. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I need a mask yet, this would however, be a very good investment for a thief or a someone trying to rob a bank. Just saying.
