Toronto based studio Hot Pop Factory transformed Pez Sweet heads from Disney character heads to personalized 3D heads of real people. The clever design project was created in response to a request from a company's holiday gift for its employees. Employees' heads were scanned with a Kinetic motion-sensor and reproduced on plastic printing desktop machine. It is an ingenius gift idea that is original, fun and memorable.

3D printing has been a hot topic this week within the design community, and rightly so. It is a fun new technology that has opened up possibilities for many kinds of art forms and is being used frequently. Founders of Hot Pop Factory Matt Compeau and Bi-Ying Miao have artistically made use of the 3D printing in their new project. Stats for Personalized Pez Heads Trending: Older & Chilly
