A Visitor's dream? Unwrapping the past - Virtual autopsy, live!

A revolution is happening in museums and store rooms around the world. Objects held in museum storage for hundreds of years, some hundreds of millions of years old, are starting to see the light of day in entirely news ways using 3D visualisation and are now not just being explored by scientists, but enabling museum visitors to explore subjects in ways they would never have dreamed of until now. Thanks to the application of medical scanning systems and affordable 3D visualisation technologies, a revolution is unlocking artifacts that have lain hidden for centuries and bringing them to new life.

In this interactive session, join curators and experts from world renowned organisations, such as the British Museum, the Centre for Medical Imaging and Visualisation at the Univeristy Hospital of Linköping and London’s Natural History Museum, where some of the natural world’s most amazing subjects will be revealed and show how they can be made accessible to visitors in galleries too.

This session will be conducted on a large interactive touch table and projected for attendees for an immersion experience. It will also be fully interactive and in real time, presenting the opportunity to ask questions, steer the investigation and even perhaps for attendees to make new discoveries on the day.

This will be a remarkably interactive session, not just because of the incredible subjects being explored or the expertise involved, but also because this is a novel way to experience collections and involve the public in ways that, until recently, could only have been dreamed of.
