Virtual Reality Dissection System Helps Study Anatomy, Spare a Cadaver

To help students at University of Michigan to literally immerse themselves in the study of anatomy, a new virtual reality application has been developed based on a real cadaver. The app works inside the popular CAVE virtual environment that turns a whole room into a 3D screen within which the user’s head and handheld joystick are continuously tracked. This allows the joystick to be used as a mighty scalpel while naturally looking around the cadaver and getting close to the relevant details.
