back to article Women reveal all for X-rayted pin-up calendar

The German tentacle of display outfit EIZO has come up with a provocative pin-up calendar which shows that female beauty is indeed more than skin deep: The EIZO calendar's Miss July Nice. This 2010 calendar was for some reason released in June, but there are still plenty of months left to promote EIZO's "medical imaging …

    Er...

    Are you sure they are females? The first one seems to have an overly protruding coccyx.

    ...and they thought models were dumb?

    Yeah -- even more so when they're irradiated for the shoot!

    Wow. some shoes!

    How come the shoes are opaque?

    Is it ethical to take x-ray snaps for publicity? The model must have overdone her yearly x-ray quota!

    Or are the photos fake?

      Opaque Shoes

      Clear heels are commonplace in the porn industry (apparently).

    Benny Hill Sketch

    The Benny Hill Show once did an astonishing skeleton striptease

    - music & all.

    IRC first it took off it's arm then a hip then a leg etc until there was absolutely nothing left.

    Very cerebral for Benny Hill.

    If anyone could locate it on YouTube?

    The first pic..

    ...has a coc(cyx) that is rather pronounced!

    Nice idea

    Reminds of the video for "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" by the Chemical Brothers. Could one call this art? Possibly.

    See? A rational, coherent post with no distasteful comments like "I'd like to bone 'er."

      "Could one call this art?"

      Yes, one could indeed call this art.

      Such a shame it had to be for money's sake and not for art in itself :/

        Art for art's sake, money for God's sake

        I don't see any "money" in "itself" but most of "sell" is there.

    Can the Moderatrix please let us know when the first commentard has made his boner remark so that everyone else will know that they can win something? In the words of Dr Who, "Let someone else go first".

    Anyway, it's an obvious ploy, we can see through it.

    Well at least that's one way to tell if they are real or fake.

    I forget when and where some scientist - palaeoanthropologist, palaeoarchaeologist? -- anyway, he said when finding a skull if you want to stroke it it is a female. Otherwise .....

    Judi Dench was going to be one of the models. But there was a copyright problem with Boney M.

    I was expecting x-rayTED as advertised - no buttons for eyes or mixed stuffing in site!

    These are grown ups with fused epiphyses - check out the patellae.

    Complete breach or european radiation regs, unless the images are of cadavers...

    Not real?

    The shoes are the same and the outline looks the same in each shot. Add in the high quality of the images and ones suspicions grow.

    Some clever render of a 3D computer image?

    It's CGI

    Given that the credits include this line:

    Illustrator/CGI: Carsten Mainz

    I'd say that it's all rendered. :)

  33. Dr Patrick J R Harkin

    I don't think those are x-ray images.

    The soft-tissue detail is all wrong. I assume someone has melded the images of a skeleton & a woman from his CGI library. And I think he used a male skeleton, judging by the angle of the pubic rami. Bone density is very odd too. But IANAR (I am not a radiologist)

    Re: CGI or not

    It's simple to make a 3D render of something like this. Even a hobbyist with a 3D app like Poser can make this sort of image in minutes.

    Full marks for the calendar idea, though.

    WTF?

    Another Sign of The Times...

    I almost don't know what to say. I will say this, if there is someone out there that seriously wants to or likes to or gets off on looking at (ETC) photos / "pin-ups" of skeletonized versions of women, this world is worse than I thought. First it was lame cartoons, now it's women portrayed as something that look like something that just crawled out of a flippin coffin. Am I the only person that thinks this is sick and twisted? Who the heck came up with this idea? I just don't know what else to say. It's a damn shame.

      OK...

      ...I'll bite, since you didn't use the Joke icon I'll cautiously assume you are serious.

      While I can't speak for anyone else, personally I didn't find anything arousing about these pics. Did you? What I did find was a clever pastiche of the semi-porn cliche that is the Pirelli calendar, and one that provoked some introspection on the whole business of porn and the intrinsic nature of the human animal that is its centrepiece.

      If you truly feel that either the publishing or the appreciation of this calendar is indicative of society's descent (rather than, I dunno, whole countries being enslaved by corrupt mass-murderers so we can enjoy cheap consumer-goods), then I welcome your well-reasoned and insightful reply.

      "Am I the only person that thinks this is sick and twisted?"

      Much as it pains me to admit it, no you probably aren't. But you'll probably find more kindred spirits over at http://www.dailmail.co.uk/ than here.
