During spring 2009, Interactive Institute C-studio in Norrköping has been working on The Virtual Autopsy Table, a public installation that allows the audience to interact with stunning volumetric 3D datasets of real scanned human bodies. The project is collaboration between Norrköpings Visualiseringscenter and Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV). C-studio used state of the art research results from CMIV and Linköpings University to develop a public installation that allow the audience to explore the inside of the human body. The project is a good example of how the Interactive Institute act as an interface between academia, the industry and the society. This unique project has since it went public gained allot of attention on the Internet, the demo video got almost 40 000 views in one just three days. The project has been featured by a large number of technology weblogs and magazines. Maybe Engadget, an American international technology weblog, summarizes the project best "we can all probably agree this is one of the best uses for a multitouch table surface ever". For further information about the Virtual Autopsy Table please visit www.visualiseringscenter.se/autopsy Read more articles and posts about the project:“Virtual Autopsy Table brings multitouch to the morgue” – Engadget“Virtual autopsy: Finally a use for the Surface PC” – ZDNet“Virtual Autopsy on a Multi-Touch Table” – Pathtalk“The Virtual Autopsy Table” – VizWorld“Virtual Autopsy On a Multi-Touch Table Surface” - Slashdot
