Mini Dome

The Mini-Dome is a tool to digitise small artefacts, for on-line presentation and analysis, including relighting and filtering functions. This apparatus is a hemispherical structure, with 264 white power LEDs, under computer control. There is one overhead camera, focused on the center of this dome structure. The dome itself consists of 4 shells, which can be easily assembled or disassembled. For the moment, the dome yields IBR results on the basis of estimates of local surface orientation.
Cuneiform tablets or coins are good examples for the kind of objects we intend to digitise with the system, and we already collaborate with the assyriologists at the universities of Leuven and Cornell.
