In the Groupon Mother's Day Shop, consumers will see that the e-commerce marketplace is offering a very special deal—the chance to print a 3DU, a 3D-printed model of yourself that can be used as a stand-in on Mother's Day and other occasions. Groupon humorously notes: "Unlike busy adult children, life-sized 3D-printed models do not have hectic schedules. That means they’re there when Mom needs them most: all the time."

Considering the costs of custom 3D printing, this offer from Groupon is running for $30,000. Whether or not this offer from Groupon actually sells, it still makes a fun way to acknowledge Mother's Day this year. If purchased, the 3D-printed gift will be created with SWIGRO.
