Meet The Virtuali-Tee, a T-shirt with a QR code that looks like a rib cage. By scanning it with their phones, users can take a look at the human chest cavity.
The Brighton-based start-up Curioscope, has introduced The Virtuali-Tee, a garment printed T-shirt with a QR code that looks like a rib cage. By scanning it with their phones, users can take a look at the human chest cavity.
The product uses a mix of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) to make it possible to explore the human anatomy. The experience can be described as a guided tour inside the body or a “magic lens” that allows users to see the internal organs. Here is a demo video of the product:
The company led by Ed Barton and co-founder Ben Kidd has sold more than 3,000 Virtuali-Tees, raising nearly $1 million in seed funding from LocalGlobe.
“With the Virtuali-Tee, AR is your interface and VR is used to transport you somewhere else. The technologies should be merging”, as Barton told Wired.
The two entrepreneurs started the company in 2016 to provide a look into a side of the world that remains hidden, reads on Curioscope`s website. The next challenge for the company will be the launch of the Great White Shark AR app. Additionally, the two founders will roll out Operation Apex, a VR experience with HTC Vive Studios that will place people in a virtual environment with sharks.
“Whether you’re diving under the ocean or into the bloodstream, the world around us is full of magic. We build products to unlock this and to fuel the curiosity that exists within all of us.”, as stated on Curioscope`s website.
