Welcome to our recurring post, 3D Interactive Tech Talk, highlighting how interactive technology is being used right now and where it’s headed.
‘Mockulus Thrift’ Pokes Fun And Proves Point
Google gave out cardboard virtual reality headsets at I/O – and, surprisingly, the low-tech inventions offer limited functionality, including one item not found on Oculus Rift: a built-in side button.
And what point does Google prove with this device? That even a $2B product can be missing little things that make all the difference . . . like a built-in side button, so there’s always room to innovate. Check out their official page.
Cadavers No Longer Required
Medical education will never be the same, thanks to advanced engineering and gaming technologies that have mapped every structure in the human body to deliver “a realistic, immersive and interactive 3D environment, allowing students to visualize, create and experience the human anatomy in ways not previously possible.
Students at a few lucky colleges in New York, Idaho and Texas will soon “be able to easily interact, dissect and manipulate virtual anatomy as if using real body parts, creating a lifelike interaction, while significantly reducing the resources previously needed to perform such exercises.”
