Sharing innovation to inspire action

A 2,000 year old Egyptian mummy scanned

This mummy is on display at MONA in Hobart. Alongside it, in a separate coffin, you can see progressive scans of the body. It's surprising that the skeleton has been preserved for so long. The scanning process can be applied to any volumetric dataset, not just mummies. For instance, you could now have yourself (alive or recently deceased beloved family or pets etc.) CAT-scanned and made into a hologram, a crystal paper-weight, or a life-size volumetric 3D prototype replicant. www.petermorse.com.au/2011/07/visualizing-pausiris-mona/
