Coffee mugg

"Hey, that's my mugg!"
  [vote for,

Send us a front and side photograph of your head or the head of someone you know...heck, send us pictures of your dogs' head, or your boss if that's your thing.

These images will be scanned and converted to a three dimensional image and a digital caricature will then be rendered.

Rapid prototyping of this caricature will then create a mold that will let us produce a ceramic mug with the cartoon head of your choice.

Then hand painted, this one of a kind, personalized hot beverage conveyance facilitator is yours for four low low payments of $49.95 for the first mug plus shipping and handling, taxes extra, interest on balance compounded weekly.

Subsequent mugs may be ordered for only $29.95 EACH!
Ask yourself this.
Can you afford not to?

       Loads of other great illusions on this blog - just found it today.

       Interesting idea, but I'm thinking you're gonna have to charge more than $50 a pop to make any money on this.
