Cafe Prints 3D Heads Out Of Chocolate For Valentine’s Day
At the FabCafe in Japan, guests can have their head scanned and cast into a mold to make a sweet treat for their loved ones.
The FabCafe in Shibuya, Japan features a mix of 3D printing, laser cutting, and regular cafe offerings. In February, it is running a special workshop where participants can have their head captured by a high-tech machine that provides a 360° scan to make a unique 3D printed chocolate mold.
FabCafe says all it takes is a look of love that you want that special someone to see when they open their box of chocolates and are greeted with a small chocolate version of your head looking up at them.
The workshop consists of two consecutive classes in the run up to Valentine’s Day, and those who attend will receive a collection of chocolate heads to give to their loved one for the special occasion. They also get to keep the 3D printed mold, so they can make more chocolate versions of their head in the future if they wish to.
Wired reports that this Valentine’s Day promotion, which will also teach participants the basics of 3D printing, costs 6,000 yen (around $65).
If the thought of eating your lover’s head freaks you out, admire it on a Pez dispenser instead:
Toronto studio Hot Pop Factory hacked Pez dispensers, replacing the typical cartoon bust with a 3D printed version of each of their customer’s heads for a unique holiday gift. Who hasn’t dreamed of having their own Pez dispenser?
