Visual Science and the RAS Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology have created the first scientifically accurate 3D Virtual Reality animation of the Sungir people — Homo sapiens who lived 30,000 years ago and are believed to be ancestors of today’s Northern and Eastern Europeans. The visualization is based on skeletal remains of two siblings aged 10 and 13 years old from the Sungir site in Central Russia, one of the northernmost Paleolithic settlements in Europe.

The project was made with support from the All-Russian Science Festival “Nauka 0+” and for the Festival’s 200 000 visitors in Moscow. Sungir VR animation was featured in VICE Motherboard, Newsweek, IFLScience!, Cosmos Magazine, VR Focus, VR Scout and Virtuality.

The world’s most highly-cited interdisciplinary science journal — Nature — collaborated with Visual Science to create an edition of Nature Outline supplement on quantum computers.

The two-page illustrated explainer covered the differences between classical and quantum computing (e.g. bits vs qubits), the challenges of building a working quantum computer, and the ways quantum computing could revolutionize science and technology.

Visual Science created the supplement’s graphical concept, illustrations, and cover design, as well as a three-minute scientific animation for Nature’s website. Visual Science’s scientific and design expertise made it possible to create content for both a professional and general audience, thereby accomplishing Nature’s editorial goals and simplifying the publishing process.
