orget those grainy, black-and-white sonogram photos. A Japanese company will create a 3D-printed model of your unborn child in utero (about $1,275). The company uses CT and MRI scans to create a digital model of the mother's torso, which is then 3D-printed to scale. Result: An opaque white fetus encased in clear resin representing the mother's "amniotic" fluid. The "Shape of an Angel" keepsake comes in a decorative pink-and-white box, although any extra fetus keychains made in the same process will cost you extra. Source: Discovery News
