The Lion Shrine Gets Scanned (With Lasers!!!)

You may remember our post last week about the Lion Shrine being scanned and digitally rendered (in 3D, no less). Well, if you passed by the Lion Shrine today, you probably noticed the beginning of the rendering process. If not, you’re in luck, because we have some pictures below!

By far the coolest application that the University is going to use this scan for is that they are going to use the scan to create a 3D animation of the Lion Shrine. For example, the Lion will be able to get off his pedestal and move around on screen. This can be used on the jumbotrons in Beaver Stadium, Rec Hall, the BJC, and Medlar field, as well as in Penn State media publications (commericals, videos etc.).

The scanning should take 2-3 days. I’m really looking forward to seeing the animation (though that probably won’t be for a while).

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
