X-Ray pinups turn out to be fakes

When Japanese tech company Eizo published a calendar with X-Ray pictures of pinup girls it raised debates all over the web. The company announced their calendar in their press-release:

“EIZO medical imaging high precision displays for the examination and diagnosis of radiographs. Whereas craftsmen are showered with pin-up-calendars at the end of every year, this kind of present is less popular among medics. EIZO breaks this taboo. This pin-up calendar shows absolutely every detail.”

After some more debates Eizo came out with the announcement that the images were ‘Fake’, not real X-Rays but computer animations made by German design firm Butter. Initially made for a limited audience the calendar images quickly went viral. If you missed it, Here are the pictures and the making of. There’s also more on the Wired website.
