Welcome to the digital age of virtual human cloning, in which stunningly accurate replicas of faces are created using 3D sculpting technology.

This ingeniously creative idea, made popular by Akihibara-based Clone Factory in Japan, uses several DSLR cameras that take photos of the human face from different angles.

Danny Choo, a blogger that started Culture Japan, saw for himself how they are made: Using a computer program, the pictures are combined into 3D data, which is then fed into a specialized printer that uses plaster and ink to mold the finished replicas.

The result? A miniaturized yet perfectly similar plaster mold of his face, capturing even the smallest details and angles.

The price for each work ranges around $1,300, a tad pricier than today’s modern contemporary paintings, but is indeed worth the cost if preserving that once-in-a-lifetime event stirs that child in us.

Oh! By the way, they clone animals too!
