What happens when you pop a pill? Inside the University of Calgary's $1.5-million virtual-reality room, scientists can don a pair of 3-D goggles and find out in high-definition detail. Biochemist Christoph Sensen and his colleagues have created a virtual human dubbed the CAVEman (for Automated Virtual Environment) that lets them monitor how a virtual body metabolizes medicine.
What: Caveman, a virtual-reality rig that simulates the anatomy and physiology of the human body
Where: Alberta, Canada
Why: Because the world needs a more affordable, less invasive alternative to body scans
Wow: Hit zoom to see a blood cell eight feet wide.
The display room would be more effective if it were spherical with the user inside. Placed on multiple rollers, the sphere would allow the user to walk in any direction without distracting lines where the walls meet the floor.
The question isn't how to display 3D, there are other cheaper methods, but WHY, the benefit of 3D display is in it's capability to display huge amount of data while keeping your 2D viewing angle.
The actual display is non-relevant unless more hardware is plugged to the display and provide MORE information while looking on the same organ/system.
that is realy cool, it kinda really expensive though.
whoops i ment to put
