Journey to the centre of the human body

Project reference: 1617

Objective of this project is to create interactive game inspired by movie “Innerspace”. In first stage 3D virtual model of human body from Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance (MR) images will be created. This model will be than imported into the game engine (Unity 3D). This engine will be customized, control system allowing player to move through 3D human body will be implemented. Outcome of this project could be used not only for propagation of HPC among general public but it could be also developed into more sophisticated system which could be later used for educational purposes of medical students.
