First-time parents do sh*t like this, not realizing that they'll have the real thing in less than 20 VERY SHORT WEEKS (4D ultrasounds usually wait until 20 weeks at least).

And they'll look back at what that disposable income could have bought that they'd actually still enjoy and weep.

I saw these when my wife was pregnant with our 2nd about a year and a half ago.... creepy.  Save your money and invest it in a 529 or similar.

This.

Just... no.

But why is the fetus on the mantle?

Those were some funny looking Asians.

Because of my wife's minor birth defects, California law required our health plan to provide free 3D sonograms of our kid.  We definitely preferred the old fashioned, flat, black-and-white ones.  The 3D pictures kept making me want to yell "WELCOME TO EARF!" at my unborn daughter.

How is babby printed?

I was going to say that both of those things are creepy, but then I remembered that I have a drawer full of toothbrushes from my dentist and I framed a wall-poster from a conference, so maybe it's just natural to take random crap you get from spending money on something else and post or stash it somewhere.

And if someone gave me a random souvenir CAD drawing I'd have trouble resisting the urge to get it machined, I mean all it takes is like fifty bucks and some old metal stock.

Wow, the future is here. I really feel that colonizing the universe is the next logical outcome of this technology.

I prefer to keep my actual fetuses in a jar, like Barbara Bush.

Or just wait a few months for the production release.

Tokyo....

I doubt this will become a thing in America....

The FDA also opposes ultrasound for entertainment purposes, and registered sonographers can and have had their licenses revoked for performing non-diagnostic ultrasounds.

Then have it dipped in lucite and mount it on your mantle.

NASA thinks so, with their new 3D-printed rocket engines.

It's like having Arnie Grape shouting gibberish all day.

I prefer to keep my fetus's like Rick Santorum does.

Playing with my living kids and sleeping in my bed... Dead.

Is there any clinic that will give me a sonogram of my empty womb? Because I'd hang that image on my front door along with a sign that says "No children are allowed on the premises. Go play somewhere else."

Glad to know I'm not the only one who things that 3-D sonograms are creepy.  3-D printed versions... this is Evel Knievel rocket-jumping over the uncanny valley.
