awesome!
“This making of the “Evolution of Games” is an impressive, coordinated and directed masterpiece, and proof that not everything is done inside of a computer.
It’s fun to see the piece come to life while watching the finished piece in the same window. Hooray for handiwork. ”

Clone Factory

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011




Wow, this is bizzarre, cool, and ever so slightly creepy! A shop in Akihabara called Clone Factory will scan you face, produce a very realistic 3D-print of your head, then attach it to a 20 inch doll of your choice! The creepy part is how real the head looks compared to how doll like the bodies are. For an in-depth pictorial documentation in the process, look at our ever so loving dancing Storm Trooper Danny Choo’s documentation here!
