Check out my virtual 3-D world! It’s mostly extinct. Museum collections worldwide remain hidden from view by the public, kept locked away. We have to change this. We need to listen to the stories of our planet kept by these collections. Using new 3-D technology we can now visualise our vast natural and cultural history collections like never before. Using new and accessible technology we can create amazingly detailed virtual worlds of our past and present, whether it’s an ancient site, an extinct dinosaur, or even your favourite toys from your childhood. The virtual world is the best way to learn about our past, capture our present and imagine our future.
