Forget latex horror movie masks this Halloween. Nothing is creepier than photo-realistic carbon copies. Japanese company, REAL-f, has done just that. The company specializes in 3-Dimensional Photo Forms, or objects that bear a stunning resemblance to the original down to the minute details. Their latest product is the 3D Face Mask. For a fee of $3,920, customers can get a copy of their face.
The masks are so accurate that details match right down to the pores and blood vessels. The mold is obtained from several images. REAL-f has a small photoshoot for its customers, getting pictures
of their faces from various angles. The image is then imprinted on vinyl chloride resin stretched over a mold. For two thousand dollars more, customers can even get a replica of their entire head.
Aside from being a potential face replica for people undergoing facial reconstruction, it’s hard to think of a function for these masks. For the wealthy man and a few of his friends, the masks could be the start of a Halloween clone army. A bank robber with a few thousand to spare may also have the perfect mask for a clean getaway. The masks and heads could also be an entirely accurate, if extremely unsettling, gift to relatives to remember you by.
