Facilities - Virtual Reality Laboratory

Using the virtual reality lab

The department has a state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) laboratory for computer visualization, manipulation, and analysis of 3-D data from CT scans, laser scans, or obtained with a total station. This laboratory will be used for the virtual reconstruction of fragmentary or deformed fossil specimens, collection of anatomical landmarks from 3-D data, and to virtually walk-through archaeological sites.

Additionally, the department has also a color 3-D printer (ZCorp Spectrum Z510) to produce natural size or scaled 3-D replicas of virtually reconstructed objects.
