Microsoft's HoloAnatomy app for the HoloLens augmented reality headset introduces a highly immersive way for users to view the many layered systems of the body from any perspective.

While there are plenty of software programs, anatomical models and 3D apps that have attempted to provide this same level of comprehension in the past, the format in which the HoloAnatomy app is experienced is unparalleled. With an AR headset, app users are able to see everything from muscles to veins before their eyes on a dynamic holographic model. This technology will be extremely valuable for students in the future who are studying a range of medical disciplines.

Recently, Microsoft's HoloAnatomy app won first place in the immersive virtual reality and augmented reality category during the 2016 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival Science Media Awards competition.
