Make Your Product New, Even If It's Old
At the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, visitors are getting a better view of history when they go to see the Eternal Life in Ancient Egypt exhibit. Using 3D design software called Freeform, museum workers are able to more accurately reconstruct mummies' faces to show what they would have looked like during their lifetime. For example, a forensic artist used the software to recreate the face of a mummy believed to be a three-year-old boy. Forensic artists use a stylus to create the computer model, so they don't have to physically handle the ancient artifact.
