Employing Advancing Technology to Enhance Imagery
of the Microscopic World by Mol Smith (Co-founder Mic-UK)
Both of the following offers
expire on August 13th at midnight 2007!
3D Poser Model
I will pay £150.00 prize to the first person who demonstrates the best 3D.obj model of a Rotifer which can
be animated in Poser 7 software. To build this model you may need to collaborate with several authors on Micscape
especially when building the material textures. At the time of writing, no life-like models exist of living forms
at the microscopical scale. The rotifer is one of the most interesting animals and so I have selected this one
to be the best first such models to build.
What is a Poser Model? Well I have animated a Poser model of a Mosquito in a little dark spoof here below, which
should give you an idea!
The prize will be paid via Paypal and the winning person
must own a Paypal account to receive the prize money. Please contact Mol Smith is if you believe you can demonstrate a life-like 3D model of a Rotifer which can be animated
in Poser 7.
Your Best Photo Transformed If you have a hi-res
beautiful image of your own copyright of any living structure plant or animal which you would like me to transform
into a stunning 3D image free, please put a low res one in your Mic-UK gallery. I will select the one I think is best for
3D conversion and create a final 3D print for you and send it to your home. You must have a 300dpi version at least
6x4 inches minimum for me to create the 3D print for you. Write to Mol for further details.
