I have seen some of the 3-D projection systems in use at Canada's National Research Council and have concluded that they will be a powerful teaching tool in the classroom. Systems such as are described in this article extend that capacity to enable the representations to go beyond the scanned object and to create "augmented" versions - for example, stating with a scanned dinosaur skull, you can layer muscle tissue and skin over it to provide a representation of a living dinosaur. Next step: full motion augmented 3-D representations.
