Any parent will admit that seeing their child through an ultrasound is one of the most amazing points of their lives, but what if you were blind? A blind mom-to-be got the chance to 'see' her son thanks to the molding of two technologies: 3D printing, and an ultrasound.

 

 

Tatiana Guerra is expecting her son in the near future, where she was given a 3D printed version of her son's face along with the words "I am your son" spelled out in braille. Guerra lost her sight at 17, and now at 30 years old, technology has given her the chance to 'see' her son. Guerra worked with ad agency Mood, to produce the short film you see above.

 

The film is called "Huggies Presents: Meeting Murilo", and is part of an ad campaign from Huggies Brazil, with 3DPrint.com reporting that the 3D printing was done by The Goodfellas, a digital design firm. Photographers Lucas Tintori, Roridgo Westphal Galego, and Fábio Kenji captured the teary moment on film.
