Anatomy in 3D

This is an interesting article from the New York Times that I was reading. The part that I think is coolest is how they’re using the 3D aspect in a way that really complements learning anatomy. Obviously doctors still need to dissect cadavers to have a firsthand understanding of the body, but adding a virtual system to that learning just gives them more knowledge. New technologies such as 3D have a lot more possibilities than just making a TV company more money.

If you think about it 3D technologies could really revolutionize classrooms all over the world. Imagine learning astronomy, chemistry, or physics in a 3D enabled room that could project what you were learning throughout the room for you to walk through and explore in an entirely new way.
