• The Meetup

What if you could go inside the brain? Health Impact Studios will be hosting the next RTPVR meetup and demoing VR Brain Exploration! Explore the brain from a first-person perspective! Experience pathway activation by following signals. Create a true representation in your own mind.

They will demo and discuss development of their 3D model. It provides an accurate, immersive and interactive VR experience of the human brain. The rendering can be navigated freely, which allows the user to examine the sub-components of the brain individually. Programmers and scientific staff will be on hand to discuss the project, which was funded by NIDDK/NIH.
