WASP's 3D Printed Scenic Design Work Complete for Teatro dell'Opera in Rome

I volunteer with a few local theatres in Dayton, mostly as a sound technician and a stage manager, and occasionally as a member of the stage crew. But I generally stay away from working with the sets – I’m not much of an artist, so I don’t like painting flats, and I’m just a little […]

Using 3D Technology to Recreate the Lost Faces of Herculaneum

Using 3D Technology to Recreate the Lost Faces of Herculaneum

After 800 years of silence, Mount Vesuvius came dramatically to life in August of 79 CE, belching forth deadly gas, molten rock, and searing volcanic ash onto those unfortunate enough to occupy the surrounding towns during its first day of eruption. The following night a pyroclastic surge barreled through the town of Herculaneum at speeds […]

Italy's WitLab Creates 3D Printed ArcheoRov, Ready for Underwater Archaeological Expeditions

I really enjoy learning, and writing, about drones. There are a lot of applications for drone technology, ranging from the more mundane (but fun!) pizza delivery to cutting-edge drones being used as first responders in search and rescue operations. So, what’s even cooler than a drone flying through the air? Drones swimming through the water, of course! […]
