Virtuali-tee: a “medical T-shirt” that does not cover but exposes

    With the first glance at this amusing little thing, several obvious puns are born at once, about something that “literally turns it out”, and about “wearable toys”, and about clothes that expose, not hide, and so on and so forth.

    But the essence is quite simple: you need to point the smartphone’s camera at the augmented reality shirt to enjoy the anatomical features of our body.

    Sorry, but again there were some gifs ...

    Virtuali-tee is a project with Kickstarter, which is positioned as an educational one. Its feature is that a special marking is applied to the t-shirt.

    If you point the camera at it (having previously enlisted the IOS | Android applications ), the user will see several educational sections: the respiratory system, the digestive system, etc.

    This is very funny. You can try to do it right now with this photo:

    Information, of course, is not enough for medical students, but as a guide for elementary classes in anatomy, such a thing can definitely work. And imagine how entertaining such an interactive approach can be in a modern school, where, at times, only a teacher does not have a smartphone.

    You can look at the skeleton or organs from different angles: you can zoom in, zoom out (actually, by approaching or moving away the camera), look from above / below.

    Separate functions, such as sectional view, are activated by the controls: in this case, where it is possible at the software level, there will be a magnifying glass with plus or minus symbols.

    In the 360 ​​degree mode, you completely plunge “inside” the organ:

    The minimal effect of being in the form of your “virtual hand” occurs when you click on the central lower button:

    In general, this is a rather funny educational project that in a gamified modern form can contribute to a greater interest, immersion in the subject. The application is localized.

    Of the additional "bonuses". The ability to take a photo.

    Or, which is much more interesting, again, if this is demonstrated in elementary school lessons, the ability to measure the pulse directly with the camera in the same application.

    The pulse comes out pretty believable.

    As a result, here you are taught and entertained with an eye to the “digitalization" of the educational process, which is quite in the spirit of the times. A good addition to the interactive whiteboard in the classroom. And, judging by the sections, for a few lessons - just enough.

    For independent work, such a T-shirt is also suitable: viewing from the front camera is available. Also here, from above, there is the possibility of switching to VR mode.

    If you want to become a “walking textbook”, you can buy a Virtuali-tee T-shirt with a 10% discount on the coupon:VIRTUALHABR until the end of May.

    Have a good weekend!
