BodiPod: interacting with 3d human anatomy via a 360° cylindrical display


We present BodiPod, a 3D 360° stereoscopic human anatomy browser. Our cylindrical display allows users to view a human anatomy volume at full scale from any perspective. Shutter glasses are only required if users want to examine the data stereoscopically. Users can change views simply by walking around the display volume, and interact with the human anatomy model inside the display through gesture and speech interactions, which include scaling, rotation, peeling, slicing and labeling. Our demonstration shows that using a cylindrical display has the benefits of providing stereoscopic rendering of human anatomy models at life-size scale that can be examined from any angle, while allowing interactions from an appropriate viewing distance.
