In a groundbreaking 3D digitization project, Interactive Institute Swedish ICT,
Today, 3D digitization, modeling and interactive visualization create endless possibilities for museums where the technology can be used for research and education, preservation of collections and to create new visitor experiences. On
Our new exhibition focuses on the human aspect, while also offering new perspectives on
Amulets played an important part in ancient Egyptian religion. They were believed to transfer magical properties to the wearer, and were usually placed on specific areas of the body to protect the deceased. In the case of Neswaiu, one of the amulets is in the shape of a falcon. The falcon was associated with the god Horus who was worshipped at the time Neswaiu lived. By using a combination of modern 3D scanning and printing technology with traditional metal casting, it has been possible to recreate the amulet without disturbing the mummy, and once again let the amulet take physical form.
Turning complex data into an amazing user experience
The mummy has been captured digitally in 3D using a combination of dual energy Computer Tomography (CT) and 3D photogrammetry using the Autodesk ReCap solution, resulting in a complete 3D model of the mummy, not just for the outside but also on the inside.
“It is truly inspiring to see how technology, now so much more powerful yet so accessible, can offer unprecedented new ways to experience, explore and learn about our past. We should be genuinely concerned about the fact that, due to natural disasters and wars, we loose our cultural heritage on a daily basis and Reality Capture offers a toolset to save it today and keep it, in digital form, for posterity.” – Tatjana Dzambazova, Senior Product Manager, Reality Capture,
Data from the CT scanning and the 3D surface scanning have been combined in Inside Explorer – an interactive visualization touch table developed by Interactive Institute Swedish ICT. Inside Explorer creates a photorealistic digital representation of the mummy that allows the visitors to explore all the layers of the mummy both inside and out- from the small carvings on the sarcophagus to the anatomy - as well as the artifacts wrapped together with the body.
