3D face scan to help future surgery


Visitors to London's Science Museum are being invited to have their faces scanned in 3D.

The 'Me in 3D' exhibit uses an array of cameras to build a virtual image visitors can then view and manipulate.

Data from the participants will be used by hospitals in Britain to provide better treatment and surgery for patients with disfigurements and congenital conditions.
