Well Fat Bear week is over now, but I found an interesting story about the way they determine the winners: Laser Mapping Bears. The actually used Lidar technology to ‘map’ individual bears and estimate their overall volume. I just hope that means they’ll be making 3D printed models of our favorite fat bears in the near future (extra points if they print them in chocolate!)
