Dassault Takes a 3D Trip Back in Time
5/31/2012

Dassault Systemes and Harvard University are launching a project to explore the use of immersive virtual reality and interactive 3D in the classroom. As such, Harvard Egyptology students are being offered courses using an immersive 3D real-time virtual reconstruction of the Giza plateau.

I also saw a show that had a segment on the xbox kinect(LEAP not out yet) and they were basically showing all of these new uses that people were developing for it.  I didn't see anyone with my idea...hehe..not yet. Someone's probably already read this and is dev'ing it now! :)

Maya I think would make a good platform for it. For the arists. Then soldiworks would also be good for engineers.

I was correct then, but no I do not have one. Any ideas there? I love this idea. I just think, you combine some of this tech in ways that are not being done...and this could happen.

@Cadman-LT: Sounds like you're in need of a good VC. Got any connections?

I like the idea so much I almost can't stop thinking about it! You would have tools like Photoshop. A knife, a hand, a smudge......I can just imagine it. Give me a couple million, I'll make it happen...lol

I know it isn't feasible now. I was just thinking how cool that would be. All of this new 3d tech maybe in 10 years? I just really liked the idea of opening up a program like Photoshop, but instead you get a clay piece to play with....I just like that idea.

I think you're envisioning a definite possibility, perhaps not now, but definitely somewhere soon in the future. I don't think technology is the barrier--it's more getting people comfortable working within these kinds of new paradigms.
