The first time you looked through a microscope was probably when your middle school science teacher was teaching you about cell mitosis. We can all agree that that moment was pretty wild — for many of us it was our first time witnessing how complex our world is even on a microscopic scale.
Dr. Simon Scarle, an expert on the intersection between science research and computer games technology, recently tweeted a post of microscopic data that shows us we can now view the atomic world as a 3D hologram.
Immersive Science, a company that develops VR-based perceptual experiences of research data, also recently shared a prototype of confocal microscopy data in the Looking Glass.
If you’re like me and a huge a fan of the 1977 Powers of Ten™documentary, then I bet you’re also as excited as I am about the implications of being able to see cellular and atomic level imaging as a 3D image on your table.
