There's a Shop in Japan That Will Put Your Face on a Creepy Doll
Thanks to the Japan-based company Clone Factory, you can give the gift of an unsettling plastic simulacrum formed deep within the uncanny valley. Blogger Danny Choo has a post up explaining the entire process, which involves multi-angle photography, face-mapping, and custom 3D printing. The cost of your very own pint-sized doppleganger is 138,000 yen or around $1,700, but the effect of it is priceless.
Clearly there’s a lot of high-technology and craftsmanship going into these dolls, but that doesn’t change how unbelievably creepy they are.
