Meet the “elephant man”
IMA Solutions pushs the limits of 3D to make come back to life virtually Joseph Carrey Merrick aka “The Elephant Man” using new technologies like 3D scanning digitalization, xray tomography or even 3D biomechanic simulations to create the 3D shots of this 90′ Discovery Channel documentary.
“Just who was Joseph Merrick and why is he still such a medical mystery? Using pioneering 3D technology the Elephant Man walks and talks for the first time in over a century and with the help of 3D laser scans, ultra sounds and digital technology we discover what really killed him. Accompanying us on the journey is Brian Richards, a modern-day sufferer of Proteus Syndrome.”
