Besides practical application, 3D printing technology can also offer new opportunities for its end use. Chinese designer zhufei uses 3D printing to transform ashes from a loved one into a lively 3D sculpture. A souvenir made from the ashes of the deceased, maybe more meaningful... "it is more like a poetic reborn, like a phoenix nirvana" writes the designer.

They show a picture of a fused filament machine (Replicator 1 clone) and say it's SLS printed? The sculpture seems a bit off too, like it's a rendering composited with photoshop.
