3D Printed Skulls

My sister and brother-in-law already have a bit of a reputation for getting me cool/weird/unusual presents. For my birthday last week, however, they really outdid themselves.

These two skulls were made on a 3D printer and are from scans of a man with 'a serious brain injury'. My brother-in-law is a dentist and apparently these were in the office of a colleague who basically said they weren't using the skulls for anything and if my sister really liked them she could take them. Of course she was like: well, that's Ali's birthday sorted!

Even if they weren't skulls, the fact they were made on a 3D printer is awesome enough on its own. Those things fascinate me. It's like something out of the future. Now I just need to think of somewhere to put them.
