Science Museum Creates Stunning 2 Billion-Point 3D Model Of Shipping Galleries With 275 Lasers

The Science Museum has preserved its historic Shipping Galleries - opened in 1963 and closed in 2012 - by creating an absolutely staggering 2 billion point 3D model.

Using 275 laser scans of the galleries, the museum built a stunning virtual model of the entire exhibition, preserved in time.

The video uses just 10% of the data, which will be released publicly later this year.
