Mirracle - Using Microsoft Kinect for interactive, augmented reality, anatomy education

Research groups at the technical university Munchen in Germany have developed an augmented reality system to study anatomy.

Their second version of the augmented reality magic mirror uses the Microsoft Kinect to detect a user standing in front of a screen. Subsequently, augmented reality is used to overlay a volume visualization of a CT onto the user. Using gestures the user can select 2D slices. The prototype was presented at the open day of Klinikum Ingolstadt. For more info see

Great development for education, but it also might find its way into clinical practice.
