The University of London is demoing oversized medical images to help students pay attention in class.

British doctors have created 3D graphics of body parts to help medical students master their studies and to better absorb the material presented in class.

Dr Kapil Sugand and Dr Pedro Campos have already displayed a 13-foot kidney hologram to explain renal function to students, which was just one of a series of animations that they plan to develop.

The innovation is based on an illusionary technique called Pepper’s Ghost that uses plate glass or foil combined with special lighting techniques to make objects appear in mid-air.

Dr Sugand explained to the BBC, ‘Research in educational sciences has shown the attention span of the average student is 20 to 30 minutes, but standard lectures are at least an hour.’

The project is still in its early stages and both Dr Kapil Sugand and Dr Pedro Campos are working on creating a library full of 3D graphic lecture aids to hopefully one day become a fixed part of a surgical curriculum.
