There are only two ways of creating two perfect copies of a person: 3D printing and twins. 3D printing magician [Simon] the Sorcerer 3D-printerer uses his secret knowledge to create the perfect illusion: A 3D-printing-real-people prank.


You may have become skeptical about claims made by the marketing campaigns behind new 3D printers, but non-tech-savvy customers of department stores believe anything. [Simon] tells them he can scan a real person and 3D-print a life-sized copy in minutes. Moreover, the copy is almost indistinguishable from the original. It also responds to simple voice commands, walks around and does the robot.

The prank victims are reluctant to believe, but [Simon] isn’t shy to demonstrate his incredible machine by copying a shill member of the audience. Look closely, we didn’t even spoil actual copying mechanism. But can you also figure out how the well-built prop fakes the build process? Enjoy the show.
