Virtual Cadavers Offer New Opportunities In Medicine

Computer-generated models are starting to let researchers and students peer into the body without needing a real human stretched out before them.

Virtual dissection tables have been built at places like Stanford and the University of Calgary. Now University of Michigan computer scientists and biologists have taken the technology another step forward, using projectors, joysticks and 3-D equipment to build a floating holographic human that users can dissect, manipulate and put back together as they wish.

by Ysabel Yates

This week on Txchnologist, we learned about advances in transparent electronics that could one day lead to implantable devices that give us real-time status updates on our health. 

We also examined the development of algae biofuels after researchers announced they could create crude oil from the plants in under an hour,  and saw what happens when you unleash YouTube’s Slow Mo guys at GE laboratories.

Now, we’re bringing you the top science, tech and innovation news we’ve been following this week.
