NAME: Personalized 3D-printed Pez dispensers
AUTHOR: HOT POP Factory, a 3D-printed jewelry company.
DESCRIPTION: When asked to create an original gift for the 32 employees of one of their client, Bi-Ying Miao and Matt Compeau from the HOT POP Factory had the great idea to create personalized Pez dispensers. After 3D scanning all the employees’ head with a Kinect and tweaking the digital model to fit on the dispenser, they printed the 32 heads with a Makerbot Replicator. Head over here to read the details of the whole process.
AMUSEMENT RATE: We’ve already told you about the Japanese creative lab making tiny models of the public, so I guess it was only a matter of time before somebody thought of creating custom Pez dispensers. Who needs cartoon characters when you can have your own face on the dispenser? What’s even better is that seeing your face every time you want to eat a candy might prevent you from eating too many of them.
