Palaeontologists and engineers at Drexel University have teamed up to scan fossilised dinosaur bones, 3D-print scaled-down replicas and then use them to build perfectly-proportioned robotic dinosaur skeletons.
Ontograph Studios provide video graphics, interactive exhibits, and illustration for museums, science centres and television. The studio specialises in natural history and palaeontology, and is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards in scientific accuracy.
It does get boring simply recording and repeating mistakes made by those covering science inexpertly in the media, but when it happens so regularly and so confoundingly, it can be hard to avoid or resist. In this case I’ll prefix it with some better reporting.
A team of paleontologists has discovered a new dinosaur species they're calling Abydosaurus, which belongs to the group of gigantic, long-necked, long-tailed, four-legged, plant-eating dinosaurs such as Brachiosaurus.
