VIDEO: 3-D scanning at the Smithsonian

What can you do to bring some of the Smithsonian’s 137 million objects to life? Put them in 3-D!

This is a full-time job for two of the Smithsonian’s very own “laser cowboys,” Vince Rossi and Adam Metallo, who work in the Smithsonian’s 3D Digitization Program Office. They work hard to document, in very high three-dimensional detail, many of the institution’s many priceless and important collections so that the objects are available for research, education and general interest.
