Virtual Heart lets you explore multiple real-time views of the human heart, using the same highly realistic visual elements as the iconic Giant Heart at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. This vibrant 13-foot-tall animated heart from MSI's YOU! The Experience is now also available in convenient iPad size.
Take a visual and educational touchscreen journey through the beating heart, developed in collaboration with XVIVO Scientific Animation. Choose from an external view or three internal views showing the heart's valves, blood flow or electrical system at work inside the beating heart. Controls let you adjust the heart rate anywhere from 30 to 180 beats per minute, or to enable key labels identifying different areas of the heart’s structure. Learn more about the heart and circulatory system with additional information presented on the display.
Virtual Heart is not a static picture, but realistically animated and constantly beating like a live heart you can explore at multiple levels. It's the most amazing view of the heart you can get without rib spreaders.
What's New in Version 1.01
Improved electrical system animations
Excellent for education
Very well illustrated. Excellent for education. Although more theoretical information can be added i the app for more reading
Would be really good if you could include some detail about how each part works. And could you include about how the blood flows through. But really good app :)
Very Nice App.
Would be nice to allow a landscape view too? More labels on the anatomy would help.
