Over the month of March, 2001, the world mourned the destruction of two ancient, beautiful, colossal Buddha statues in the Bamiyan region of Afghanistan.
All were at a loss – except for Tatjana Dzambazova and her team. Using photogrammetry and 3D digital modeling software, Tatjana’s team was able to recreate 3D virtual models of the statues, thereby preserving a valuable piece of human history that would have otherwise been forever lost.
Reality Computing technology is bringing the history of past generations back to life! Tatjana’s work with the Bamiyan Buddha statues is only one of the many examples of how Reality Computing technology, such as photogrammetry, is being used to preserve and promote historical and ecological objects that would otherwise be inaccessible to the majority of the population. Whether you are a technologist, historian, educator, or none of the above, this TED Talk will have you amazed at what is now possible with Reality Computing, and how it is literally changing the future of our past.
