3D: Printing the Future Exhibition

Journalist and presenter Evan Davies poses with a 3D printed model of himself in the exhibition “3D: printing the future” in the Science Museum in London, on Oktober 8, 2013. Davies’ model features his arm in a sling due to him being scanned in August 2013 whilst recovering from a broken wrist.
