The Body VR lets users experience the wonders of the human body and its billions of living cells. Users travel through the bloodstream and learn everything there is to know about how blood cells work to spread oxygen through the human body. They also learn how the body reacts when it is faced with deadly viruses. The education platform accurately visualizes the human anatomy; showcases high-quality, realistic graphics; visualizes how disease and treatment affect the human anatomy; incorporates learning modules and storytelling to help students understand specific aspects of the human anatomy; and allows for rotating, zooming in/out, hiding/fading of organs and systems. The Body VR is available on Samsung Gear VR, Vive, Oculus, and coming soon, Google Daydream. View the HTC Vive trailer online.

It was amazing to me to see such incredible structures like the Eiffel Tower and the Roman Colosseum. Our teacher did a wonderful job of sharing what these locations were like but I remember wishing I was there.

From rabbit holes to mirrors, flamingoes to hedgehogs, Wonderland is the perfect world for virtual reality.
