A new crowdfunded project aims to recreate the Japanese metropolis in 100 tiny, 3D-printed pieces. iJet Inc., a Japanese “3D printing solutions company” is behind the One Hundred Tokyo effort, which has already received more than double the funds they were asking for.
If all goes to plan, the team should have a complete, multi-dimensional and super-accurate model by November. Each square will be 10-centimetres-by-10-centimetres in size, and based on “realistic urban model data” gathered by the same data provider used to build Google Maps. Each square will be available for individual purchase, though let’s be real: you’re probably going to want to buy all 100 to get the full city.
