Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, have created the Heads-Up Virtual Reality device (HUVR). Not only does this low-cost device let you see a 3D image, but it also allows you to "feel" it as well.

The Heads-Up Virtual Reality device is best-suited for training and education in archaeology, medicine and mechanical engineering. According to UC San Diego, the device could be used to "visualize and manipulate a 3-D image of a person’s brain taken from an MRI, or an artifact too fragile or precious to be physically handled."
