Veronica Scanner

The big event today has been the launch of our display of the so-called Veronica Scanner, a system of 3-D digital scanning which enables a very precise record, and hence replica, of a head.   I had seen the result once before in the head of Jacob Rothschild which was shown in Masterpiece in June.   But it is much more impressive to see the technology in action and then to see the results, including the head of Stephen Rubin QC made out of red wax, glass, chocolate and scagliola.   I particularly admire the chocolate head for its combination of precision and extreme fragility (it has already lost an ear):-

I was done.   It’s hard not to blink.   I await the result.
