Vetenskapsveckan: Prova på dag med 3D-scanning av skulpturer och andra forskningsverktyg

Som en del av vetenskapsveckan "Framtidens universitet" firar Humanistlaboratoriet på Lunds universitet sitt tioårsjubileum med en heldag av praktiska demonstrationer på Skissernas Museum.

Nu får du möjlighet att prova en del av labbets verktyg såsom att testa dina ögonrörelser, virtuellt följa med på en rundvisning i en villa från Pompeji eller varför inte scanna en av museets skulpturer i 3D-format.

På Humanistlaboratoriet finns allt från apparatur som gör att de kan mäta ögonrörelser och hjärnaktivitet till ljud-, musik- och professionell inspelningsutrustning. De cirka 500 forskarna som använder labbet studerar allt från samordning i en kör till tredimensionella modeller av arkeologiska fynd och hur barns och ungdomars hjärnor reagerar på språkinlärning.

Evenemanget är en del av Lunds universitets 350-årsjubileum.

Här kan du läsa mer om de fyra praktiska demonstrationerna som kommer finnas på museet:

Can using your gaze instead of a mouse improve your gaming skills? Eye movements have long been used to interact with a computer, for instance instead of using a mouse. In this demo you will test the classic Atari game Breakout. Instead of the using the mouse, the paddle at the bottom or the screen will be controlled with your eyes. Will gaze play improve your game?

Do you have an eye for art? Research from the 1960s shows that people typically look at a rather small part of an image and revisit the same areas repetitively. In this demo you will look at well-known paintings and an eye tracker will reveal exactly where you look. Perhaps your eye movements will reveal the mysteries of Mona Lisa?

Are you as good a writer as you think? Keystroke logging is a method for investigating the writing process in real time. We can replay everything the writer did: movements, deletions, changes and pauses. By combining it with eyetracking it is further possible to see when (or if!) the writer reads her own text. In this demo you will be able to try keystroke logging. Who do you think delete most of their texts – beginners or skilled writers?

Can you create a 3D copy of a sculpture? 3d-scannings allow us to record objects in three dimensions and create a digital copy. Such a copy can easily be shared between researchers from all over the world as well as being used in virtual exhibitions. In this demo you can try and 3d-scan one of the sculptures from Skissernas museum.

How did a rich banker in Pomepeii decorate? A Swedish archaeological project has been working in one of the city blocks of Pompeii for several years, carefully documenting and investigating every aspect of the buildings. Terrestrial laser scanners allow us to create virtual copies of architectural structures. One such structure is a house in Pompeii. In this demo you can see what the hourse looks like today and what it looked like 2000 years ago using a headmounted display and a smartphone.
