The oldest stone tools known to man were found in remote Northern Kenya. The tools date back 3.3 million years. My friend Dr. Louise Leakey documented the excavation and tools using Autodesk technology to share the discovery with the world.
These historical findings are detailed in an article published last week in Nature Magazine (May 20, 2015). Now, through the power of Autodesk technology, people all around the world will have the chance to share in this major scientific discovery.
Dr. Louise Leakey, in collaboration with Autodesk, used Memento technology to create high quality 3D digital replicas of the stone tool artifacts, for preservation, education and further research. Memento is Autodesk’s cutting-edge free software that enables users to convert photos or scans into 3D models to be optimized for the web or mobile viewing, or 3D printing.
