You can now take a 3D peek at several famous historical artifacts thanks to a project from the Smithsonian Institution. Launched on Wednesday, the Smithsonian X 3D Web site serves up a collection of 3D images of artifacts digitally scanned by the museum through a partnership with Autodesk. You can zoom in on a specific area or or zoom out to see the artifact in full view. And you can share a snapshot of any artifact through e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Delicious.
