  •  
    My students and I have been playing with Aurasma today on our ipads and iphones.

The Human Anatomy, Animated With 3-D Technology - NYTimes.com - 0 views

  •  
    NYU Medical students wear 3-D glasses and dissect a virtual cadaver projected on a screen. The professor says "it's like a living digital textbook." I do, however, really hope my doctors have experience with the human body and don't do like a kid who has practiced basketball and never played in the game - bumble the ball as they start.
