One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color.

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.

When the user moves the card, the virtual character moves with it and appears attached to the real object. 3 Steps to Creating an Awesome Virtual Museum in Class You're spending an afternoon browsing the exhibits at an art museum. If you're anything like me, you'd probably appreciate the art a lot more if you could bring someone along that could explain the history and nuances of the pieces on display. Now imagine pointing a device at the painting and seeing it morph into a dynamic video giving you all the information you wanted about the art. Welcome to augmented reality. Virtual reality replaces the real world with an artificial, digital environment.
