The Brain in 3D

Harness the power of augmented reality using your own smart device. Download our free app from the app store or google play store and explore and interact with the human brain.

By using augmented reality (AR), the user gains an amazing insight into the tissues, structures and areas of the mind by moving the device around the special artwork provided.

You can choose to view the mind in AR or switch to a 3D mode within the device and rotate with your fingers.

The three dimensional models are colour coded to provide clear, concise and easy to follow views of the brain.

The app provides an advanced and interactive view of the head and mind which is perfect for educational demonstrations, learning at home or just the enjoyment of finding out more about how our inner-selves work.
