New face of chocolate


Hisoka Yuasa, 4, receives a full-body scan during a chocolate making workshop ahead of Valentine's Day at KS Design Lab in Tokyo. A chocolate-making workshop by KS Design Lab offers classes ahead of Valentine's Day for making personalized gifts, by turning one's face into a chocolate treat for their significant other. Participants first scan their faces and edit the data using a computer software. The data is then sent to a 3D printer to produce silicon molds which chocolate is eventually poured into. The workshop is free of charge and attracted close to 20 participants.

Maybe part of the agreement lists 3D data usage to other companies...

That's what I'm wondering. A year from now some company is looking for a 3D "4-year old" scan and this girl's body scan is sold to them. kowaidesune.

Maybe part of the agreement lists 3D data usage to other companies...this dark pic reminds me so much of the first "Resident Evil" movie with a cute little girl's hologram saying "You are all gonna die!"

Just noticed they even have her standing on a chair so that they can get a good scan of her feet. What's up with that?

I agree with Zichi. There is no reason to do a "full body scan" if all you're using is the face in the chocolate. What are they doing with the full body scan afterwards?

Weird comments, guys-

cute little kid, probably having a ball making her very own chocolate!

Adults would get a kick out of it too, but a limited one. Only if it were cheap would it be worth the trouble.

"Hisoka"? As in "secret"? I imagine this is the little girl's pseudonym.

However, I must add that the photo looks like some confounding contemporary art installation.

That's just creepy, to be honest. Maybe a scale replica chocolate mask would be better. But it has some weird cannibalistic undertones to it all. Still, it looks like a lot of fun for the girl.

It's a good idea. But I think they need to improve on it.

I think it's only light, not X-rays, they're scanning with Zichi.

What is the problem? It' s a lump of chocolate on a stick with a (not very realistic, if the photo is anything to go by) impression of a face on it.

An innocent enough article and great photos. Seems like some believe too much of the media that make people think there is a paedo on every street corner.
