Over the last few months, our Studio has been working on co-development of an animal cell app with Reading University. This is part of a 3 year research project to establish if haptics has an impact on education.
The project uses our 3D plant and animal cell models in combination with various technologies including virtual reality, to allow students to explore the detail of cell biology.
Although the animal cell app is a long way off completion, we have now used these assets to develop an educational app, which provides detailed information on the components of an animal cell before testing the user’s understanding and knowledge with a series of quizzes. Although still in development, the response from various experts has to date been very positive. Stay tuned for more information about release of the app .
