Send your loved ones (or enemies) a 3D-printed nude selfie, if that’s your thing

Genius hate-gift idea or creepiest? Suppose both are true with British retailer Firebox’s Nudee, which lets you 3D-print a face onto a near-naked figurine in an array of body types.

To get started, all you have to do is snap two selfies – a profile and a front-facing shot – and upload to the Nudee tool. Then, select the gender and body type from slim, curvy or muscular (there’s no in between, apparently) and wait as your 7.8-inch figurine arrives in its 3D-printed, underwear-only glory.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

I’ve heard of people getting boudior glamour shots taken to preserve their youth and beauty, but this takes erotic photoshoots to an entire different level. Nothing quite captures the supple ripples of your skin quite like face and body mapping technology.

The figurines start at £149.99 (approximately $213 USD) apiece. Something tells me the overweight one is gonna be quite popular with the Ship Your Enemy Glitter types, if you’ve got that kind of money to waste.
