Have you ever wondered just how much like an alien your unborn foetus looked? Well, if you have a spare ticket to Japan and $1,200 you can find out! They’ll also send you home with a specially-printed sculpture of the unborn person in your uterus.From Newlaunches.com:

A Japanese firmĀ Fasotec has sensed the need and has thus in collaboration with Parkside Hiroo Ladies Clinic in Mintao-ku, Tokyo devised ‘Shape of the Angle’, a miniature 3D replica of the foetus that you can actually keep as a memorabilia for the rest of your life.

Yes, I’m assuming they misspelled “angel” as “angle.” The model costs 100,000 yen ($1,230).

The process requires an MRI scan. The data from the scan is then used to build a statuette of the foetus, as it was positioned inside of your uterus. I guess no one mentioned that we don’t yet know the risk to a foetus from MRI, but that some studies have suggested there might be negative effects. UCSF suggests “it is good practice to avoid MRI during pregnancy, particularly for elective studies or during the first trimester.”

But if you really need that little statuette, most studies haven’t seen any ill effects of MRIs on human fetuses.
