3D at the Smithsonian

Richard at Corvidae send me this link to the Smithsonian’s public front end for their 3D collection. At first glance, it’s just another bunch of 3D models you can spin and twist, but deeper exploration reveals incredible resolution and very easy manipulation: I was able slide my point of view right into the pilot “seat” of the Wright flyer with very little effort. Its well worth a look. Older browsers may not be compatible.
