No matter how your kids learn about anatomy, it's always a little bit creepy. Whether it's the skeleton hanging in the corner of a classroom, dissecting worms, or looking at images in a book, anatomy isn't for the squeamish.
There is an alternative, though. This one incorporates virtual reality and a smartphone app to teach kids, and it's pretty cool.
The Virtuali-tee T-shirt has a digitized image of a rib cage on it. It looks like a regular shirt, until you look at it through the Virtuali-tee smartphone app.
Then, the shirt transforms into a 3-D image of the inside of a person's body. Of course, it's not really looking inside anyone's body; it's just an interactive image.
You do need to wear a virtual reality headset, like Google Cardboard. When you're all set up, you can zoom in on organs and travel through the bloodstream. Well, maybe it is a little creepy.
Check out the video below to see how Virtuali-tee T-shirt works. Note: Virtuali-tee is raising money on crowdfunding site Kickstarter. So far, the company has raised about one-third of its nearly $100,000 goal.
