Oh come on now, a series of plastic fetuses (feti?) showing your child's weekly in utero development artfully arranged on a shelf circling the nursery? How can you not want that?

It would be a great way to screen potential boyfriends/girlfriends.

And just look at that cute little tail! Isn't she a sweetheart?

And just look at the damage done by all those CT and MRI scans.

Hmmm...Do you suppose that's why she still has a tail and gills?

sigh... I think it's just a matter of time till people want a 3d model of their colonoscopy... and I'm sure for the right price, someone will do it for them.

FloridaSteve:

Katie Couric, among others, has thoughtfully provided us with a guided tour of her colon, but sadly, it's in 2D. Maybe next time she will enlist the producers of the movie "Avatar" to provide a truly jaw dropping experience in 3D.

I'm not sure how a complete colon could be imaged for input to a 3D printer, but as they say, "where there's a will there's a way."
