Autodesk writes about our collaboration on their blog: Autodesk Helps Museum Capture 3D Digital Models of Egyptian Mummies

"The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities (Medelhavsmuseet) in Stockholm, Sweden is pioneering an entirely new way for visitors to interact with a collection of six ancient mummies. Instead of staring into glass cases to see only the surface of each mummy, what if visitors could operate a large touch-screen, digital “table” display allowing them to rotate 3D images and explore the inside secrets each mummy holds? That’s the goal behind a remarkable digital reality capture project that kicked off this month and will lead to a ground breaking, interactive permanent exhibit slated to open in February of 2014.

A dream team of experts has been assembled to tackle the challenge of making the Museum’s vision of an interactive 3D exhibit a reality. Contributors include representatives from the Interactive Institute Swedish ICT, Norrköping Visualization Center C, the Center for Medical Imaging and Visualization (CMIV), the Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities, FARO (maker of advanced computer-aided measurement and imaging devices and software) and Autodesk’s Tatjana Dzambazova, senior product manager in the Reality Capture group."
