Japan just can't help but to tempt fate. First they produced the Godzilla movies. Now they're voluntarily bringing dinosaurs back from the dead.
As part of a 260-specimen dinosaur exhibit in Chiba, Japan, visitors will be able to see moving, life-sized dinosaurs right on the museum floor.
Running from July through September, the "Dinosaurs over time!" exhibit uses Canon video scopes to offer a "site-wide view" of 3D CG dinosaurs. Useful for both enhancing the museum-going experience and scaring children away from learning, the result is a "mixed reality" experience (also known as augmented reality), in which the analogue and digital worlds combine to begin man's inevitable fall into the purely digital realm.
