Website lets you create face replicas to gift loved ones
There was a time when only the rich and famous could afford to have statues carved in stone. Now, with advanced facial analysis and the advent of state-of-the-art 3D printing technologies, ThatsMyFace.com makes this art form available to anyone, ordered online and delivered direct to the door. My Face requires that you submit two photos of your face, taken at two different angles; a head-on shot, and a profile shot. They must be clear, with good lighting conditions, no obstructions and outline the full shape of the face to get the best results. ThatsMyFace.com does the rest and reconstructs a realistic 3D facial model.
Thatsmyface.com customers may even tweak its appearance, such as changing age, ethnicity, or even, gender. The resulting face can then be applied to a variety of gifts, from a $29 keychain to a $2000 head sculpture.
