Developed for Mircosoft HoloLens by Case Western Reserve University, HoloAnatomy enables viewers to walk around a holographic human body for self-paced examination from various perspectives. For example, students using the app can study muscles, arteries, heart, lungs, and so on depending on how close they get to the body. Last week, it was awarded first place at the 2016 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival Science Media Awards, a competition which began this year with over 500 entries. Described as “absolutely the most amazing piece of technology,” HoloAnatomy is a stepping stone toward a full-blown holographic anatomy curriculum expected on campus in 2019.
