15th-century warlord's sword digitized more than 500 years after his death in battle



An ornate sword once used by 15-century warlord Ali Atar has been brought into the digital age by being digitized into a 3-D animated model. Ali Atar was a military commander in the service of King Boabdil, the last sultan of Granada. Created by Spain’s Universitat Politècnica de València and 3-D specialist Ingheritag3D, the interactive animation lets viewers rotate a digital version of the sword's hilt and take a closer look at the elaborate artifact.
