Thousands of fossils are now available at the fingertips of scientists and rookies worldwide in an online collection. The British Geological Survey used laser-scanners to create 3D virtual models of the fossils that can be rotated and viewed in detail.

Paleontologists hope that one day, 3D printed versions could even produce a life-size dinosaur replica.
