Anatomy 4D Changes the Way We Learn About the Human Body Anatomy 4D, a free mobile app from DAQRI, gives students and educators the ability to explore every detail of the human body and all its systems in stunning detail. The app, which has been incredibly popular with the education community, allows users to isolate bodily systems: muscular, skeletal, circulatory and more, to see every detail and how each one works together. All you need to do is print the targets below and scan them with your phone’s camera. We’ve recently added a new target that gives a detailed, interactive look into the human heart - a learning experience previously only accessible in a gross anatomy lab. 4D embodies the way today's students can use technology to comprehend complex concepts in a much easier and more engaging way.

Enter "THE VOID": The World's First Virtual Reality Theme Park "Virtual reality theme park" might summon images of Oculus Rift-enabled roller coasters, digital carousels, and imaginary funnel cake, but THE VOID wants it to be more like a fusion of the best video games ever, The Matrix, and your favorite childhood laser tag joint. Unlike stay-at-home VR experiences, visitors enter the physical location of one of their Virtual Entertainment Centers (VECs) and don top-of-the-line headsets, programmed to match up any number of digital worlds to the structures THE VOID is occupying. A custom outfit that includes haptic vests and gloves let players pick up items, press buttons, and feel the (simulated) bullets, alien attacks, and dragon fire bursts teased in THE VOID's new trailer, which you can see above.
