Hi,

This video of a recent TEDX talk shows the power and practicality of virtual reality in studying and displaying fossils.

Please note: The FORCE is strong in this one !!

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.

Hi,

The World Science Festival is in Brisbane, Australia from 9 to 13 March 2016.

I wonder what this looks like .....

Experience Dinosaurs & Prehistory in Virtual Reality, a state-of-the art virtual reality experience.

See the most scientifically accurate interactive 3-D models ever created of Australian dinosaurs and prehistoric life. Presented by Dr Scott Hocknull – palaeontologist and Senior Curator Geosciences at the Queensland Museum, you will delve into an amazing world of fossils, dinosaurs and Australian prehistory.

Perhaps its the Euclideon Holoverse / Hologram Room.

If you live close by, check it out.


EDIT 10 March 2016:

Alan Alda is in Australia promoting science, communication and the World Science Festival in Brisbane.

He gave a great talk at the National Press Club in Canberra today.
Star of film and TV including MASH, Alan Alda addresses the National Press Club in his role as a Science Advocate. He speaks on the topic Science Belongs To All Of Us.
