Community Highlights

Virtual CAVE of Center for Computing and Communication is a 3D Model of a cave in the Bamiyan valley, Afghanistan where once two big Buddha statues where carved into the rock face. In 2001 they've been destroyed, but archeologists together with computer scientists shaped this fabulous 3D model of the statues in order to be able to explore its structure in more detail.
