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.

Just how far has handheld gaming technology come? Let's take a look inside the Nintendo 3DS XL and find out.
Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the world’s biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Sam’s Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
