Google Glass in the Gobi: Road Trip

Since 1990, Museum scientists have traveled to Mongolia to find fossils, continuing a tradition of Museum expeditions to the area since the 1920s. In 2017, a team led by Provost of Science Mike Novacek and Paleontology Division Chair Mark Norell headed to the Gobi Desert. The group included graduate student Aki Watanabe, who as a beta-tester for Google Glass recorded a paleontologist's-eye view of a fossil excavation. 

Watch as Watanabe goes from spotting bone fragments to extracting whole (and huge) fossil bones.
