3D scanning to Preserve a National Treasure from the 1964 World’s Fair

Here’s details of an amazing project from Cyark who are wanting to preserve a piece of American history. From the company… “we’ve launched our first ever Kickstarter campaign to fund the scanning of the 1964 World’s Fair New York State Pavilion in NYC, in partnership with University of Central Florida and the New York City Dept of Parks and Rec.”

Through a Kickstarter funding effort, Cyark plans to 3D laser scan (and preserve) the endangered 1964 World’s Fair New York State Pavilion to create a digital record to aid preservation.  The digital preservation will occur with high-speed, high-precision 3D laser scanners. And all resulting 3D data will be made freely available to the public.
