Smithsonian X 3D

A recent development of the Smithsonian institutions, Smithsonian X 3D allows users to view and print 3D renderings of artifacts of historical significance ranging from a wooly mammoth skeleton to the flight suit of Amelia Earhart. Bringing users and rare learning materials closer together, this Smithsonian project illustrates the innovative means in which learning institutions are giving collections new life through emergent technologies. 

With only 1% of collections on display in Smithsonian museum galleries, digitization affords the opportunity to bring the remaining 99% of the collection into the virtual light. All of these digital assets become the infrastructure which will allow not just the Smithsonian, but the world at large to tell new stories about the familiar, as well as the unfamiliar, treasures in these collections." - Günter Waibel, Digitization Program Director
