Would you like a face mask? Yes? Why then, would you like an extremely photo-realistic three-dimensional mask replica of your face? Osamu Kitagawa, who set up Japanese company REAL-f to manufacture these alarmingly life-like masks right down to the pores, capillaries and eyes, spent two years perfecting the technique. Prepare to fork out US$3,200 (300,000 JPY) to make just one, and if you’re freaky that way, you can choose to make additional face clones for just US$640 (60,000 JPY) a piece.
