"I just can't wait to hold my baby!" How many times have the expectant mothers among us expressed such a desire? Now, it's finally possible...in a way.
Brazilian PhD student Jorge Lopes has pioneered a method of converting data from MRI and ultrasound images into life size models of unborn babies.
His method, called rapid protyping, slowly prints layer upon layer of plastic powder until a 3D model appears. The method has been used for everything from jewelry and car components to mummies; and now to babies hidden within their mothers' wombs.
