Tokyo-based company Kamenya Omoto specializes in masks, and their latest offering is quite creepy to say the least. The store is offering to pay $340 USD to the rights to your face. Should you accept, they’ll use it to 3D print a hyper-realistic mask, which will then be sold for $940 USD. If customers frequently purchase your mask, the store will then offer to pay a percentage of the sales. The project is officially called “That Face” and has already proven to be a hit.
The response has been so great, possibly due to all the coronavirus restrictions imposed by the government, that the faces now are drawn through a lottery. That’s right, the supply of faces has exceeded their expectations, so you’ll now need to be extremely lucky to get paid. However, there are some restrictions as to who can enter, or at least two main ones: be over 20-years-old and a resident of Tokyo, Japan.
- Build Volume: 150 X 150 X 150 Mm
- Layer Resolution: 0.1-0.4Mm
- Max. Print Bed Temperature: 100 C (212 F)
We will buy and sell your faces. A science-fiction story has now become reality. No one yet knows what will happen to a world full of the same faces as you,” said Kamenya Omoto.
