3DPRINT - July 30 - Match.com is a big fan of using technology to set itself apart from other dating sites. At the beginning of this year, the company partnered with Ripples technology to create coffees with the faces of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes 3D printed in the foam. Match is now offering another pop-up event that lets women meet potential matches in 3D printed form before meeting them in real life. Called "Model Males," the pop-up event will be taking place from Wednesday August 2nd to Friday August 4th in the Marylebone area of London. Several men from Match.com have been 3D printed courtesy of Mini-You, each at around seven inches tall, and they will be displayed in the pop-up shop, located at 34 Thayer Street. Interested women can come in and learn about potential dates by reading details on their packaging, while getting a look at them in miniaturized 3D. If they're interested, they can then contact those men by following a link on the packaging.
