Editor’s Review

Forget the amazing model of the human heart – the menu and user interface on this interactive demo is the best we’ve seen.  Gorgeous, clear menu and help screen, augmented by a friendly voice gently guiding the user, make the experience outstanding.

Now, back to the heart. The large hyper-realistic model appears to be flesh and blood as it constantly pumps and churns before your very eyes.  Every artery is visible, and the heart monitor in the background makes you feel like you’re in the operating room examining a real heart.

This is a demo, but even the four modules are enough to be educational as it is.  Great work, and we hope to see more from this publisher.

Publisher’s Description
Today in mixed reality we are able to let whales swim across your room or start the Millennium Falcon from the kitchen table.

ANIMA RES, a highly specialized production company for medical visualization, has committed itself to awaken our fascination for the human body. INSIGHT HEART is the first app from a planned series for the medical education of the future. Within INSIGHT HEART a virtual companion called “ANI” guides you through the functions of the heart with her voice. You control the heart by gesture or voice control – as expected for one of the most innovative interfaces.

You can zoom, rotate and scale a high-resolution heart hologram right in front of you and further experience the heartbeat in real time in a fascinating and immersive way. Incredibly impressive visual effects of myocardial infarction, arterial hypertension and atrial fibrillation enrich the experience and take medical education to the next level.
