Case Western Reserve University, in partnership with Cleveland Clinic, is developing a holographic medical anatomy curriculum for the newly-launched Microsoft HoloLens, an augmented reality headset that projects holograms into the real world. "HoloAnatomy" is a demonstration app meant to provide a brief glimpse of what this future medical anatomy curriculum holds. With simple gesture and voice commands, students can turn on and off entire biological systems or explore individual organs and structures in exquisite detail. HoloLens even enables professors and students to look at the same hologram together, enhancing the interactions and learning in traditional lab or classroom settings.
