"The secret of the Great Pyramid, the sole survivor of the Seven Wonders of the World, has fascinated people throughout time. Countless theories exist as to how it was built, but none stands up to analysis. In 1999, Houdin had an insight and decided to devote himself to developing his theory. Eight years of passion and research ensued, whereby he imagined the construction site of Kheops as the first industrial construction site in history. To further refine and test his theory, he called on Dassault Systemes to help. As part of its 'Passion for Innovation' sponsorship programme, DS decided to help Houdin solve the 4,500-year-old mystery with its real-time 3D solutions."
Bob Brier will apparently be accompanying Houdin to the site for field work. See the above page for the entire press release from Dassault Systemes.
