It may seem slightly gross by the Curiscope Virtuali-Tee uses AR in an incredibly impressive way as it combines educational benefits with stunning visuals. By leveraging the use of a smartphone app, the Virtuali-Tee lets users turn their shirt into an anatomic representation of a person's insides. During its first launch, the app and shirt were capable of showcasing basic organs and bones but a new update allows the shirt to show the users heart beating in real-time.

This new feature for the Virtuali-Tee works by using a technique called contact photoplethysmography. By having a user hold their finger on the camera, where it measures how much light it sees to project the AR image, it also checks the user's pulse through their finger. This then allows the app to showcase the beating heart on AR and relay it to the overlay on the shirt.
