    1 October 2014, 11:13 pm by: Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Casey Chan to Gizmodo

    The only thing that I think that doesn't look 'human' about Ed, this computer generated human head designed by Chris Jones using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita, is his ears. Oh and how he doesn't have a body. But everything else is pretty perfect: the oil and…
