This website has 17,000 3Dcscans of famous sculptures and cultural artifacts

Scan the World has thousands of high-resolution scans of statues, sculptures, and other 3D museum pieces saved in the STL format. You can upload them to 3D modeling apps or print them on a 3D printer. To check it out, I uploaded the head of Michelangelo's David to Blender and threw a couple of colored spotlights on it. — Read the rest

Captivity Day 19

So I've had a little dig around in some of my old scans and found a few more pics to share on the Adv thread but thought I'd post a couple here with a few extra words. Yes, this is me dressed in my finest safety gear about to embark on my first "tour" on my mighty RG250 (note the bottle of two stroke oil strapped behind the pack). Me and a mate (Gary, GSX1100) rode through from Napier to [Author: Andrew Thomson]

New Technique Creates Stunning 3D Images of Live Insects

When taking high-resolution 3D scans of insects, scientists typically have to kill their test subjects, which isn’t always ideal. By taking advantage of an insect’s ability to survive oxygen-poor conditions, scientists have now used carbon dioxide to keep bugs in a state of suspended animation for upwards of seven…Read more...

A.I. Prizes, Coming to Healthcare, Hit $1M Mark in Cancer Contests

This story is part of an Xconomy series on artificial intelligence in healthcare. Some of the other stories cover a , A.I. and radiology, and the impact on doctors and patients. In the classic 1967 film “The Graduate,” Dustin Hoffman’s just-out-of-college character gets one word of career advice from a family friend: plastics. In healthcare, there’s a growing rumble of advice about which career not to go into: radiology. In the next five or ten years, some observers say, machines will re...

Sci-Fi Sundays: The Original Science Fiction Stories, March 1957

This is such a wonderful cover. The look on the lady's face, the ridiculous zero-G fighting, and the bullets in the ray-gun are all fantastic. As I was looking over all the details on this cover though, I began to see a different story. Look at their clothing. The style is about what you'd expect from 50's science fiction, with tight boots and over-alls. Her outfit has some common traits from the 50's including a shape that lends itself to a bullet bra, and a waistline that looks impossible. ...

Sci-Fi Sundays: Worlds of IF, March 1968

When I first picked up this issue of Worlds Of IF, I have to admit that I didn't have high hopes. This hodge-podge collage of a cover simply didn't instill confidence that what I would find inside would be of much quality. Boy was I wrong. The illustrations in this issue are simply delightful. The cover is actually attributed to a specific story, so I guess an artist set out to create what, in my mind, looks like an introduction to microsoft powerpoint. Then again, this was the 60s, maybe this l...

Sci-Fi Sundays: Analog, March 1969

As usual, Analog always shines when it comes to cover art. They've got the fantastic Kelly Freas who supplied rich and colorful depictions for many years. On top of that, the actual printing itself is of decent quality. If you compare this to the issue from the last article, you'll see that having your print lined up perfectly wasn't always the case for magazines like this. I noticed that the pants on the illustration are tailored with a bit of detail around the tail. There's a snap and a zip...

CT scan of a bee's brain

This bee is clearly smarter than me. [via] “Bees are known to perform very complex tasks considering the size of their brains and their simplicity compared to high-level organisms,” said Gill. “If we can focus on simple tissues and find the small changes that can have profound effects on behavior, it can give us a basis to start understanding how very small changes to that brain can do that.”
