Get inspired…  What clients ordered so far

Emma, 81, Berlin

“I want to order an actress who plays my former best friend Sarah.
We are both 20 and we talk about love and life.
We have coffee, we listen to music
and from time to time we dance a bit.”

Ari, 18, Tokyo

“I want to order a living avatar.
The avatar is my alter ego.
It does the things I don’t dare to do.
While he is out, he will be filmed.
I will sit in my room and watch on the laptop what he did for me.
And what happens then.
Then I will give him new instructions.”

Vanessa, 52, Los Angeles 

“I wonder what it would be like to have a kid.
I know that I will never have one and I don’t regret that, I am much too busy.
But I would like to know what it means to be a mother.
I order the daughter I never had.
She is 25. Her name is Jeanne”
