Virtual Reality uses 3D Laser Scanners to see WW1 Tunnels
3D scanners make part of history more accessible
Many people have forgotten the horrors that happened during World War 1, as many of the last survivors have died. We remembered through stories and textbooks, but now there is another way to remind us of what happened, a way for us to honestly remember and share the emotions with the generation before us that had to experience it firsthand. 3D scanners have become a hot topic in the technology industry because of its evolving and versatile uses. This technology was initially created in the 1960s but didn’t gain adoption until the late 1990s. The process of scanning an object was more complicated when it first started, it involved using giant cameras and lights to capture the distance from the camera. Since then, it has evolved into small handheld devices that use lasers to scan an object or scenery. The 3D laser scanners take thousands of pictures per second and can collect the smallest details people usually can’t see. After it is scanned, the images can then be transferred into a program where it can be manipulated and edited.
