Our zSpace Experience
On April 30th, my peers and I were lucky enough to explore zSpace, which is a growing technology provider that specializes in an alternative learning system. Using zSpace, we were able to view 3D organisms on a monitor with specialized glasses that move the object as you change your view, and we were able to “dissect” the organisms ourselves, pull them out of the screen, and view their labeled parts.
In this image, I am pulling the 3D organism out of the monitor and viewing its dissected parts from all different angles. I was not only impressed by this display, but also excited that technology was becoming increasingly accommodating to visual learners such as myself.
To have a greater understanding of what exactly can be performed on zSpace, check out this demo video.
At the end of the field trip, I think I can speak for all my classmates when I say zSpace was
an exciting learning tool that I look forward to using in the future, if I have the opportunity.
