Now that I've finally seen Star Wars (yes, just last week), I am able to surf the internet again without fear of spoilers.
This lead me to a fascinating science article on Blastr, a site normally reserved for science fiction. It seems that the British Museum and several European organizations are partnering to bring "predictive 3d scanning" to the world of archeology. By scanning shards/fragments of an object, they are hoping to speed up the process of piecing together artifacts and even filling in the missing gaps. The PRESIOUS Project has been in development for 3 years, and once it is complete, it's planned to be given away for free.
If you're even remotely interested in archeology or 3d Scanning technology, this is definitely something to watch.
Not much else to report on today. I had a worktastic last few days that has been keeping me from spending time on my own precious projects.
