Here are two others, a miniature and a full-sized replica. This is another, similar service for a doll-sized replica, My3DTwin: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2348962/3D-printer-make-doll-sized-twin-24 And perhaps much weirder, a Japanese roboticist has made a full-sized twin of himself: http://japandailypress.com/japanese-robotics-scientist-hiroshi-ishiguro-unveils-body-double-robot-1730686/
While perusing the museum the other day I saw a detailed bust of a Neanderthal. Having just read an article on 3d printing, I thought it would be amusing to arrange to have someone who accompanies you to the museum to be scanned, so it can be THEIR FACE in the display case by the time you get to the bust of the Neanderthal. Record their reaction on videotape.
At present, an expensive joke, but pricies WILL come down.
