Eternal Egypt at National Science Week, Japan

The National Science Week 2005 exhibition in Japan, which opened this week at the Impact Arena in Muang Thong Thani, has a joint exhibit by IBM and the Egyptian government: "The Eternal Egypt project has accumulated precious Egyptian antiquities and the most important locations, artifacts, people and stories from Egypt's history into an interactive multimedia experience. There are 360-degree image sequences, panoramas of important locations, virtual environments, 3D scans, real-time photos from web cameras and thousands of high resolution images of ancient artifacts that weave together seven millennia of Egyptian culture and civilisation. Visitors can also visit the web site to enter a virtual reconstruction of Tutankhamen's tomb, view the Lighthouse of Alexandria or examine the face of the Sphinx as it looked 2,000 years ago".
