Digital Archaeology, not in the field

Today, on this Day of Archaeology, I find myself NOT in the field at Pompeii for the first time in a very long time.  Instead, I’m busy working on three projects, all with important digital components or future implications. Also, I’ve saved looking at two tools – GoogleGlass and the Structure Sensor – for the Day of Archaeology, the later imperfectly demoed.

Forgive the jumpy cuts between the iPad and Glass video streams…

    Eric, that’s exciting! I was just taking about the structure sensor with friends. I’d love to see how the structure from light sensor worked in the field, but your link didn’t work for me. Are these the videos you mentioned?
