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).
