The Virtual Playground

April 6th, 2006

This is the coolest web tool/library that I have seen in ages. An assistant professor of Geology at UC Davis, Ryosuke Motani, and his colleagues have created this 3-D library of fossils on the web. I’ve only played with it a little, but the tool lets you drag and rotate scanned and computerized images of fossils to get views of them from any angle. The library contains fossils from several different taxa, and will grow as new fossils are added. This is the kind of thing I could play with all day, and learn a thing or two to boot.
