AR Medical

Abstract: “VR at its best shouldn’t replace real life, just modify it, giving us access to so much just out of reach physically, economically. If you can dream it, VR can make it.”
Believing: The State of Virtual Reality”
Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user’s environment in real time. Augmented reality was first achieved, to some extent, by a cinematographer called Morton Heilig in 1957. He invented the Sensorama which delivered visuals, sounds, vibration and smell to the viewer. Then in 1968, Ivan Sutherland the American computer scientist and early Internet influence, invented the head-mounted display as a kind of window into a virtual world. In Present, Google announced its open beta of Google Glass (a project with mixed successes) in 2013 and Microsoft announced augmented reality support and their augmented reality headset HoloLens in 2015.
The practical field like medical requires studying using models, which help in clearing the concepts more. The medical students take help of artificial models for studying the details. These models are either not easily available everywhere or they are not much accessible to everyone. Some similar applications exist but markers of that apps are not available so users can not use until they have markers, so in our application markers download feature is also provided. The students sometimes have to sit in labs or there are some desktop software’s for viewing these models better but they too need PC, laptops etc. to be used.
Our project is a AR/VR bases application that will help medical students and Doctors to study the medical details more easily and on the go, no need of physical models or heavy desktop software’s. Educational technology and more specifically augmented reality (AR) has the potential to offer a highly realistic situated learning experience supportive of complex medical learning and transfer. AR is a technology that adds virtual content to the physical real world, thereby augmenting the perception of reality.
