Corpse In 3D

A Chinese funeral home is now using 3D technology to restore the deceased when the body has been badly disfigured in death. It is said to be much better than just makeup to make the person who has passed on look presentable for the bereaved family. It is expensive, of course.

The only problem with their software is that all the eyes come out funny looking to westerners.

It's not high on my priority list to be the best looking corpse in the cemetery.

They know how to make 'western' eyes, look at anime.
BMN its not that, its for the family during the viewing. Getting to say goodbye to a loved one as you knew them, not as they died.

I don't get throwing all this money at a piece of rotting meat. Never have, never will.

The article is vague. It looks like they are creating a 3-D printed replica of the deceased's face, based on photos. And then perhaps, via scans, matching that up to the geography of the damaged remains -- so the printed pieces fit into or onto the body. Or are they claiming to lay down the printing goo directly on the corpse -- filling in the damage as they go, so to speak? That seems less workable.

Burn me up and be done with it.
