Paleontological expedition to Kenya
Starting on August 25, Artec’s handheld 3D scanners will be in action at a paleontological site at Turkana Lake, Kenya. Two Artec 3D specialists, Francisco and Denis, are joining the Turkana Basin Institute’s paleontology group for two weeks to help document and record the findings using Artec 3D scanning technology. Here we are publishing their daily travel notes, giving you a chance to experience two weeks in the heart of Africa.
We would like to cordially thank the TBI and renowned paleontologist Louise Leakey for giving us this opportunity!
When a scanner is used on a moving body, it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, so instead of a homogeneous shape, a three-dimensional “motion blur” is the result. In this case, digitally capturing the horses as perfectly as possible was a must.
If you hear about something unexpected surfacing in Australia, no one would blame you for first thinking about some kind of wily mammal making its way into town, or an alarmingly large spider that you’d be better off leaving alone. In this case, the surprise came in the form of a boat.
3D scanning with Artec Eva helped a Silicon Valley dad invent the ultimate respiratory mask to protect children against air pollution and viruses.
