3D Scanning Helping Us Learn About Historical Events
new technology for learning about the past
Every day something new is being done with 3D laser scanners, and that is why it is an ever-growing industry that is said to grow in wealth by 2025. Companies are finding ways to implement this technology in consumers’ lives, and that is why it is such an interesting topic that many people are now talking about.
3D laser scanners are no longer just for researchers and doctors but also for individuals looking to study history and archeologists who are trying to spread history to other countries. This technology allows us to really bring the history of events back to life so we can fully understand it on a personal level.
3D scanning is the act of taking thousands of pictures per second that collects information on an object. It gathers information through these pictures, and then the user is then able to download it to a partnering system they can then edit and learn about the object from.
This technology has gone from multiple chunky cameras that use lights from the 1960s to handheld devices that use lasers to collect data. It is accurate and precise and can be used for numerous fields and will continue to grow in uses.
3D scanning used to remember the holocaust
It has been 75 years since the horrible atrocity we call the holocaust. Thousands of people died, and a lot are being forgotten. The longer we go, the more distant the memories and evidence grow apart. Instead of ignoring this event, researchers are now using 3D laser scanners to collect evidence that will share this historical moment and will not let us forget.
This is a way to bring it back and stop all deniers from not accepting the truth of what happened. Hopefully will make it, so the next generation and the one after that never make the same mistakes. 3D scanners can help bring back essential artifacts and teach the world what happened. Certain things from the past are meant to be learned from and made present, 3D scanners are able to do that for us.
3D laser scanners are able to take pictures of the actual locations where concentration camps were and share the information around the world. This actual real footage can be shared in schools and signify the importance of not forgetting a significant historical moment.
This technology is able to take data and store it forever for further research. Real footage and even scanning the last survivors can change the way schools teach about this event. And can put an emotional spin on learning about this event, which can have a more significant impact on young learning students.
3D laser scanning is able to raise awareness more than a textbook could, it gives students a chance to feel how others felt. It also allows future researchers to study the holocaust on a personal level and be transported to the actual places to learn more about the sites.
Technology has found a way to bring the past to the present, and researchers will continue using 3D laser scanning to focus on important events.
