3D Hologram Ultrasounds Let Parents See What Their Unborn Baby Will Look Like

3D Hologram Ultrasounds Let Parents See What Their Unborn Baby Will Look Like

Printed models of early stages of development give more visual info early on in development.

Pioneer announced a briefcase-sized 3D printer late last year which can now function as a 3D printer – turning flat images of your ultrasound into 3D models.

This new capability was announced last month at the Optics and Photonics exhibition in Yokohama, Japan and takes about two hours to complete. Even though it could be a great way to preserve the image of your unborn child, the company doesn’t have any current plans to commercialise the device – citing it as a research and development project.

Here’s a video of the device in action for those whose curiosity has been piqued:
