zSpace 3D Virtual Reality Tablet
Overview: zSpace is a small desk-sized tool equipped with Cyber Anatomy software that allows users to gain a 3D view of objects that appear on a traditional 2D screen. Incorporating 3D glasses, this technology allows users to pick up objects such as organs or proteins and study them from all angles. The technology’s stylus also enables users to make sections of the object transparent, replicate the sensation of holding a beating heart in their hands, and display labels on various parts of the item they are viewing.
