3D Printed Elvis Clone in the Works

Another cause that’s near and dear to people’s hearts is the idea that Elvis Presley is not dead: Elvis Lives! And a new partnership between Authentic Brands Group (ABG) and Staramba, a new company using photogrammetric 3D scanning for 3D printing merchandising, is bringing Elvis back from the dead with plans to use the latest scanning technology to create a “3D printed clone” of Elvis! This deal also allows for more figurines and merchandise related to many more global superstars represented by ABG, such as Marilyn Monroe and Muhammad Ali. They also plan to create 3D printed selfie figurines with your favorite celebrities: think, Me and Elvis, or Me and Marilyn Monroe and you’re on the right track.

A Touch Of Gold At The Printers

The new book from the Elvis Files Erik Lorentzen is now getting its final check.  Edited by Gordon Minto, Designed by Neil Chris Middleton. 416 Glossy pages with more than 600 photos.

Synopsis: "Boldly handsome with unruly dark hair, dressed in gold lame, sideburns and lull sensuous lips, ELVIS let loose on stage and the screaming began. Screams of delight from women for whom his wildly abandoned style of singing very honestly spelt out sex appeal. Screams from many adults who resented the big, brawny young man with fantastic rhythm and no inhibition. The outcry against the boy from Memphis was loud and furious. And he was called "vulgar, animalistic, a tomcat on a back fence". Many hoped he was just a phase that would pass. Elvis Presley wasn't passing though. Then critics tried to change his unique style and to tame the rocking singer. Despite tremendous pressure, Elvis wouldn't be changed either. And why should he? He saw nothing wrong in what he did. Elvis was not as sophisticated as his critics. On stage he worked with honest zest, with the full enjoyment he felt for everything in life. At the time when so few other people dared to be different, he was an Individual, a creator of a vivid, flamboyant style. For this he was ridiculed and feared."
