3D Collections Are the Future of Experiencing Your Heritage
How would you like to take a walk along the streets your ancestors used to tread, examine tools and objects they used, and virtually experience every aspect of life in another century as realistically as possible? These experiences may be closer than you think!
Today 3D scanning and printing of artifacts is revealing a whole new world of applications. Soon it will be possible to obtain a digital download of an entire museum, a village, or a furnished room, complete with a guided tour.
A long time ago, I inherited a bunch of antiques from my grandmother that I never quite knew what to do with. Some of these items were pretty interesting, some were kind of junky, and most were handmade ceramics bearing her name on the bottom. Since I had no real interest in them at the time, and no way to display them that would fit with my own taste in home décor, they remained boxed up and in the basement for years.
