Video: Hokie puppies aid research

Using three depth-map cameras, a research team from Virginia Tech's School of Visual Arts has started a 3-D catalog of canine body types. They recently scanned three Labradors who were born at Virginia Tech, but live in private homes, as part of the project whose ultimate goal is to help identify medical issues in working dogs.

This research project was sponsored by a Institute For Creativity, Arts, And Technology SEAD (Science, Engineering, Art, and Design) Major Initiative Program Grant.
