The Real Titanic Brought To You By 3D Laser Scanning Services

The real Titanic story brought to you by 3D laser scanning services

I know this is going to make some people mad, but I have to say it. There is one thing that really annoys me about the Titanic. That is, Titanic. I know everyone loved that movie and they used up boxes of tissues as they watched it, but I didn’t. An I am sorry to blow a hole in your boat, but when the ship went down and people were waiting to be rescued at sea, there was no music playing in the background (Sorry to break that to you if you bought the soundtrack). This one is really going to sink your ship. Leonardo DiCaprio was not on the actual Titanic. In fact, Jack and Rose were not even on the ship. There were completely made-up fictitious characters designed to make your heart bleed so that you’d spend the money for another viewing. There was a boat called the Titanic. It did sink. From there the imaginations had to roll. When it comes to history, I want to know history. That’s why I am a fan of 3D laser scanning services. They get down to the real story. 

The 3D laser scanning team

Move aside Hollywood. If you aren’t going to give us the real picture than float aside and let another take a shot. This time is a 3D laser scanning services’ turn. The name of the company is OceanGate and they have a plan to give us the real picture of what the titanic looks like. There have been expeditions to the deep by other explorers who were able to take some footage of the wreckage. This time it is different. Technology is different now. The crew at Oceangate started looking diving toward the wreck in 2005. Today in 2018, 3D laser scanning services technology is more capable of capturing the wreckage than before. OceanGate plans to use its new ocean vehicle called a Cyclops 2. The name itself pretty much gives away its appearance. They are going to dive to the depths and start 3D laser scanning.

Here is the 3D laser scanning Game plan

One cool thing about this project is that once they get down there and start operating the scanning equipment that they will try to go inside. In order to do that they are going to use what is called an ROV. That stands for remotely-operated underwater vehicle. Basically it is what I always wanted for Christmas except for professional explorers who want to go where no one has gone before. They plan to take whatever video is recorded and stream it back to the surface where team members can analyze. 

It sounds like a pretty cool endeavor. I am looking forward to seeing some of the shots that they are able to record of the wreckage using 3D laser scanning services. Once again I want to apologize to all of you Leonardo fans out there who loved the movie. Even if I did blow a hole in your happiness, just remember that there are a lot more of his movies out there.  Go watch one, if that floats your boat.
