The winner of Swansea University's 2013 Research as Art competition was Laura North, an engineering graduate student who used a micro-CT scanner to reveal the toy inside a Kinder Surprise Egg and 3D print it without ever cracking open the candy. The process could be used to identify and reproduce mummified remains, or to create joint replacements in medicine, North said in a statement.
