Restoration without the restoration

Restoration without the restoration

Fascinating idea from the Computer Science guys at Purdue. 

Instead of doing expensive and dangerous chemical restoration on art, you use this completely non-evasive method.  A 3D image of the object is acquired.  One then calculates how the restored item is supposed to look (filling in paint gaps/color correction/etc), and this program controls projectors that  projects the color and image correction back onto the object via off the shelf digital projectors.  Fascinating!
