Digitizing 10,000 Real-World Objects
Researchers at Stanford University have made a data set of 10,000 3D scans of real-world objects freely available for anyone to use. The researchers created the data set by equipping 70 people with consumer-grade 3D scanners and directing them to scan anything they wanted, which resulted in a wide variety of scanned objects, ranging from cars to artillery pieces. These scans will be useful for computer modelling applications that rely on realistic recreations of the real world.
