Yes excellent fidelity.  I was  also convinced that was a photo of a real person. It will be interesting to see the possibilities. Madame Tussauds may be a prospective customer.

I believe were both missing something. The concept of creating an physical avatar sounds great but the cost doesn't justify why the product isn't durable. I'm not quite sure the math adds up here.

Ok, I understand about the high end material but shouldn't it be durable as well since its quite expensive?

I guess this technology will emerge and will become so popular in future that it might eliminate the concept of photography. People will start to place 3D printed replicas of themselves instead of placing pictures .

I'm pretty sure it is a photo of a real person photoshopped onto the background. If you zoom in about 200% you can clearly see the halo artifact around the woman. That halo is evident when two photos are combined.

Stake in the ground indeed. Any way you look at it, it's creepy.
