Techie Whispers: Hold Your Baby Before it’s Born

 

Wait, it’s not your actual baby silly.  It’s a virtual 3D image of your bundle of joy. You have to admit,  it’s definitely better than a photo.

A company based in California  uses 3D or 4D sonograms to create a doll that resembles your baby while they are still safe in mom’s tummy.

Their spiel:

“Our ultimate goal is to bring a smile to the faces of parents, grandparents, and other family members as they recall the day that they met their little one,” . This product will become a treasured family heirloom.”

The concept is the brainchild of a couple who are the parents of two little girls, ages 3 and 1. Their idea is still in the planning stages.  The couple needs to raise $15,000 to purchase a Stratasys U-Print SE Plus (3D Printer).  If they don’t get the funds the project wont move forward.  I just hope they have patented their idea as their own.  Lazy and unimaginative people would to steal this idea in a heartbeat, but I digress.

The couple is asking for small donations to make their well thought out plan a reality.  They have set up a site to help in the process.  If the full amount isn’t raised,they will not collect the donated funds. The also offer really great perks for each contributor.

  • Donate $1: We will keep you informed of our progress and community contributions.
  • Donate $25: Receive your choice of (1) your money is being pooled with the donations of others in order to contribute a 3D Baby to a military family (for every one that you help donate, we will donate a 3D Baby to another family) or (2) a 3D figurine of our 3D Babies mascot.
  • Donate $50 or $100: Receive a gift certificate for either $75 or $150 towards the purchase of your own 3D Baby.
  • Donate more: Receive 25% off of the purchase of a 3D Baby per the perk description.
As you can already tell, I think it’s a great idea.  The only thing I would change is the shine the figurines have.  I think a matte finish is more realistic.  Check them out for yourself:

I wish them the best in their wonderful endeavor.
