I am here at the Augmented Reality Event 2012 in Santa Clara and saw this rather cool demo from Daqri, a southern California augmented reality dev shop. This augmented reality application that runs on the iPad and I will call an AR body browser, allows users the ability to turn on and off various layers of a 3D female human’s anatomy that is overlaid on top of a full size image of a woman.
Now the app is limited in its functionality. There is no searching for particular body parts or clicking on individual pieces (that I have seen so far), and these are not MRI scanned 3D models, but it is a cool full size example of how AR could be used in pre-med or patient education. A nice demo for the show Daqri
