Two doctors in training of University St. George of London have shown in a trial before students of medicine his innovative vision of the future of the education as a tool for learning 3D holographic projection.

Beyond presentations to use at meetings and conferences or even the use of digital blackboards in classrooms, two physicians in training at the London University of St. George they have carried out an innovative test to students of medicine using holographic projection 3D without glasses, as a tool for training and attention.

Hamlet SGUL 3D hologramIn this trial, called by its creators Hamlet (holography assisted teaching medical and e-tutoring), Kapil Sugand and Pedro Campos held a seminar to medical students and doctors in training with an animation with 3D Holograms of human renal system.

During the seminar, showed the kidney function, in this case with a 3D hologram of 13 meters of height, and other parts of the human anatomy, including a huge skull.

As explained by Kapil Sugand, Hamlet team, "the average attention span is up to thirty minutes in a standard one hour Conference." We are using the educational theory to construct dynamic animations and simplify complex concepts, stimulate and extend the capacity of care applied to medical education".

3D Holograms of this Conference were created using the technique known as "Pepper's ghost", with three projectors LCD standard to generate the three-dimensional view, which combines with lighting to give the feeling of the objects and images are floating in the air.

Development of Hamlet has counted with the collaboration of MSk Lab of the Imperial College in London, which has provided funds to create animations, as well as assistance to the research methodology.

Both Sugand and fields have shown their satisfaction by a system that is much less expensive than the 3D technology, "which enhances the formation of a more effective way to count with best doctors".

Hamlet team is also in talks for this, still testing, can become a useful tool for learning in other areas related to medicine, such as healthcare to interact with patients and to understand better your condition, as well as to promote training in health in society.
