Curiscope’s new product, the Virtuali-Tee, is an augmented reality T-shirt that helps people, especially kids to learn anatomy better. To make it work, you need the Curiscope Virtuali-Tee app and a smartphone.
All you need to do is to put on the Curiscope’s Virtuali-Tee augmented T-shirt and download the app on either Google Play or App Store. Then, points your Smartphone or tablet to the T-shirt after running the app. It will show you a detailed and realistic simulation of the anatomy.
Tricky targeting but doable
This may be amazing if the Curiscope’s Virtuali-Tee app works smoothly. There are many reports claimed that the app does not work. Two of the major problems are connected to the camera feed that keeps saying the distance between the camera and the T-shirt isn’t close enough, and the annoying black screen.
When the camera feed notification pops out, just simply move closer to the object. If it’s not working, try different angles with the same close distance until the app is able to scan the Virtuali-Tee, and make sure you scan the top of the chest. If the black screen occurred, just agree to the camera permissions, and it will solve the problem.
If only Curiscope spends more of its time to update and make the app better, perhaps by fixing bugs, or improved the overall performance of the Virtuali-Tee app, people will give better reviews. After all, the augmented T-shirt will stay just a regular T-shirt without the app working. This product can be bought on Amazon currently for $23.96 but the price may vary in the future.
Nevertheless, people, whether young or old, can take benefits from this product. Students can use the Virtuali-Tee for their class project, or parents can use Curiscope’s new T-shirt to learn anatomy with their children together to create their own quality time. It’s good to note that this product is more suitable for those who want to learn more about anatomy.
