The quality of 3-D printed objects has evolved past clunky, monochrome figurines, as evidenced by some of the displays at the Inside 3D Printing conference and expo.

Mcor Technologies, an Ireland-based 3-D printer manufacturer, showcased how startlingly realistic 3-D printed objects now can be. As the above image shows, such objects as busts, masks and mousepads can be printed from photographs -- with scarily lifelike results.
