The 64th Gamer

I really think for preservation and archival communities there isn’t nearly enough focus on getting 3D scans of everything. Seeing high res photos is nice but imagine clicking on a wiki page for like a toy and being able to view it in its original packaging however you like.

You could also set up downloads for scans of every single individual piece, then people could easily 3D print it, set up digital rigs for it, study how it was manufactured, use it to make faithful reproductions, ect.

And for locations being able to go around a scan of the entire place at different points in time and see which parts change could be awesome too. I think its severely missed potential despite it being fairly accessible nowadays.

Certainly in the future I wanna set up an automatic scanning device with multiple cameras and a glass underside so I can take easy scans of all my belongings.
