Yet, do you realize that we could now add human dissection to anatomy class? In 3D you could dissect the human body? There are very exciting things coming in this area.
Methods to capture human movements and display them in 3D on the computer have been developed in Belgium using 2 video cameras.
We talked about Alternate Reality and a wealth of gaming tonight on Wow2 (a show the gaming as pedagogical platform group is going to need to listen to.)
