Live Science: Can a 3d scan of your body change the world?

Science Museum, Exhibition Rd, South Kensington, London SW7, UK

Event Details

Live Science is an ongoing project in which scientists carry out research in the museum using visitors as volunteers.

In this Live Science experiment scientists from Imperial University London and UCL need your help to create a large and diverse collection of 3D body scans of the human body. Using a cutting edge camera system participants will be scanned and then able to see and manipulate their own digital body in 3D.

The 3D models created with this experiment could be really useful to a wide group of scientists and engineers who need to understand how diverse the human body can be and how we move about. These include fields as varied as medicine, bio-engineering and prosthetics design, and even special effects in movies and video game design.    

The experiment runs from now - 31 January, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday (except Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 December).
