3-D scan to analyze strange holes in the skull’s jawbone. The $150 prototype incorporates a camera designed for video gaming and software that produces a 3-D map of a visual scene. One of the researchers envisions that the prototype, called Kinect, could prove useful in paleontology, archaeology and anthropology. For example, an archaeologist who unearths a large, fragile artifact in a remote corner of the world could scan it and immediately share the scan with colleagues around the world.
