Pez dispensers with lids made of scanned and 3D printed heads of real people [#3Dprinting]

Hot Pop Factory turns people into 3D-printed Pez dispensers
"Hot Pop Factory typically produces jewelry and experiments with 3D printing, but decided to construct the Pez dispensers after it was approached by a client to make a unique holiday gift for an entire office staff. […] To build the plastic candy holders, Hot Pop Factory first had to scan each person’s head to form a model for a 3D printer (the employees were told it was for a research project, to avoid spoiling the surprise). Using 3D capturing software from ReconstructMe and an Xbox Kinect sensor, the designers were able to quickly make the 3D models they needed and then clean them up using the MeshMixer tool from Autodesk." via Gizmag
