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.
