3d print magnified beetle mandibles and fuse them to the jaw. I would love to have some of these for slow moving lines and to surprise office mates.

       Do they open when you open your mouth, or close ?

       How invasive and permanent is this fusion?

       I hope your not suggesting oversized antlers for your chin but rather a piercing stud in the form of a 3D printed beetle mandible. The shape might be a bit uncomfortable.

       You would need some kind of pivot attachment, with levers and bell-cranks running back alongside your jawbones, so that the prosthetics opened and closed laterally as you opened and shut yer mooth.

       Not just decoration but a useful accessory for all those one- man-band musicians struggling to get that harmonica into just the right position on its neck-bound wire frame.   

       Why stop at beetle mandibles? Surely there's scope for all kinds of jawbone enhancements. Properly freak people out with an extensible inner jaw a la H R Giger / Alien?
