‘Unwrap’ a mummy

Medelhavsmuseet in Stockholm, Sweden will digitise its mummy collection in 3D to allow visitors to unwrap a real mummy in digital form. The permanent exhibition is scheduled to open in the spring of 2014. The curators hope it will help visitors gain a deeper understanding into the lives of ancient Egyptian people.

The museum will scan six mummies using a process called reality capture technology, where high-resolution 3D digital modelscan be made by compiling data from photos and X-ray scans.

Museum visitors will be able to explore the mummies in a way similar to what archaeologists do when they are looking for novel discoveries from ancient remains.
