Holograms Inject Life Into University Lectures [Pics]
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.
