Hold Your Baby In Your Hand Before It’s Born

Pregnant women no longer have to wait nine months to carry their baby in their arms. Jorge Lopes invented a way to converts data from ultrasound machines and MRI scans into plaster models of the babies. Lopes uses 3-D technology to create the models, which are on display at the Royal College of Art in London. Now you might ask why someone would want a replica of their growing fetus? Well, my guess is it would make an awesome one-of-a-kind paperweight. But seriously, experts say the plaster models will help expectant mothers understand the size of their baby, along with any physical abnormalities it might have. They also say the models could help mothers who have a difficult time naturally bonding with their baby. I’ve never been pregnant, but I don’t think stroking a plaster model of my fetus would make me feel all warm and fuzzy as I pray to the porcelain gods because I had morning sickness. Then again, a series of these, one for every trimester, would totally trump any bronzed baby shoes. [Impact Lab]
