Bringing Animals To Your Home In 3D
Seeing a rhino from every angle
3D laser scanning has opened up a world of possibilities. Many engineers and researchers worldwide have made it their mission to preserve endangered species in habitats specialized for them and preserve them digitally if anything happens to their habitats. This can allow people worldwide to study endangered animals and take an interest in helping keep them safe from human harm.
In particular, one case is that of an engineer who lured a Sumatran rhinoceros into a cage filled with 3D laser scanning devices. Hundreds of them were set up to observe this rhino from every single direction capturing unique information. The point was to create a 3D replica of this rhino without causing any harm to him. This allows viewers to see the rhino from every side.
3D laser scanning creates a way for a rhino to digitally walk around your room with you cozy in bed. When this copy is digital, the coolest thing is that it can be programmed to act the way a rhino would in the wild. You would be able to observe the behaviors of a rhino and see every microscopic detail of the specimen.
3D laser scanning can help conserve life in more ways
Not only does this not harm the animals, but it can also help protect them in other ways. If set up around a natural habitat, it can help alert rangers to any poachers in the area. It can act as a surveillance system that can help guard a place.
On top of that, when a rhino is being scanned, it can help researchers become aware of any abnormalities or how healthy a rhino is. This can allow them to help the rhino or intervene if absolutely necessary but never placing the animal in harm’s way.
What other benefits are there
3D laser scanning is one of the best ways to record and create files that never are deleted. This technology is connected to the cloud server, where all of the information gets stored. This allows researchers, scientists, and even museums to access information and keep track of it for as many years as they need.
This technology is much more accurate than just studying a specimen with human eyes. It can be programmed to have multiple lenses to capture information at every angle at precisely the same second. This comes in handy when studying any type of creature that is always on the move.
3D laser scanning has created a way to share information for free and sending it across the world in a matter of minutes. This means someone in America could potentially study an animal from Australia as accurately as the person taking the scans in Australia. It has proven to be an incredible tool.
3D laser scanning can be an excellent tool for anyone studying animals, rocks, humans, or anything that needs to be observed in-depth. This technology was not always used in the research field, but it has changed how we collect information and how we analyze it. Soon things will be changing, and it will be one of the most common ways to collect data and observe.
