After quite a long break, we’re back to continue to update this blog. CNR-ITABC in Rome has been working hard on creating a new version that has been demonstrated at the Italian Science Festival in Genua (Oct 25 – Nov 4, 2012) and at the ArcheoVirtual exhibition that took place in the context of the Borsa Mediterranea del Turismo Archeologico in Paestum, Italy (Nov 15-18, 2012).
At ArcheoVirtual, where a large number of new virtual museum applications where demonstrated, the Etruscanning3D application was also evaluated by the V-MusT team. The visitors were very positive about the new application.
At ArcheoVirtual, Etruscanning3D received the Award for best application in the category “New Interaction” and was the virtual museum that was appreciated the most by the visitors of the exhibition.
The new version not only contains many more digitally restored objects, but allows also to navigate freely through the tomb and to select objects. You will read more about the digital restoration of the objects in the next posts of this blog.
In April 2013, the new version of the Etruscanning3D application will be installed permanently in the Vatican Museums.
