An application developed by the Ars Electronica Futurelab transforms Deep Space 8K into a virtual anatomy theater in which viewers can observe the human body in 3-D and familiarize themselves with it layer by layer—the organs, muscles, bones, the cardiovascular system and the network of nerves. This development, coming only a few months after the establishment of the University of Linz’s medical school, makes available a unique medical education platform that far surpasses the anatomy books of bygone days with three-dimensional learning and visual understanding of the interrelationships within the human body. And that applies just as much to future physicians as it does to interested members of the general public—from little kids to seniors.
