Learning about the body with the amazing Curiscope Virtuali-tee app!

I love using technology to create moments of awe and wonder with my pupils. Two of the best tools for this are Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Imagine an app which combines both to make learning about the Human Body more fun and interactive than ever before!

I have been following the progress of the Curiscope project for the best part of a year after backing the campaign on Kickstarter. It is fantastic to finally see the app and t-shirt available.

The app is FREE however it needs one of the t-shirts to work. The t-shirts come in a variety of colours and sizes and can be ordered here.

Once you have the t-shirt, one pupil can wear it and the others can use the app on different devices to scan the t-shirt, where they are then able to see inside the body! As you can see with the following gif created with my sons.

The app allows you to investigate different physiological systems such as the circulatory and respiratory systems. You can tap an option to have a voiceover share interesting facts and information about the body. There is also the option to view using virtual reality, meaning if you get the app on an iPhone or similar device you can use a Google cardboard or VR headset and give the children a fully immersive 3D experience.

The app is a superb example of how technology can transform the way in which we learn, in this case, about the body.
