More images of bones that were rendered from a CT scan of a cheetah (photos of that process here).
Anthropologist and conservationist JP Brown modeled and rendered this skeletal for an upcoming exhibition about biomechanics, opening in March. This will be incorporated with an exterior model, the end result revealing a partial skeleton. Museums utilizing new technology in this way means we can share our research outside of our walls without having to worry about obtaining permits for protected species remains, or risk damaging permanent collections items.
And, you know, it’s a printed cheetah.
- When not all the books in the series are the same height.
- When books change covers with editions so they don’t all match unless you buy the series in one go.
- When some books are hardcover and some are softcover and it doesn’t match but you can’t find another copy.
- When some covers are different in certain countries so you don’t get the main one which also happens to look better than all the other varieties.
- Basically just books.
- God damn them.
