This app uses augmented reality to do several things. Using image targets, it displays a complete skeleton of the human hand. This hand, build from scratch in Blender, can be taken apart, manipulated and viewed from different perspectives easily in order to educate patients as well as aspiring nurses and doctors. In addition, you are able to select each individual bone in the hand and get its name and a brief description of the bone. This is significant because it can help patients understand their injury and also provide a basis for learning different parts of the human hand. This is very handy, especially for doctors who need to connect to their patients or teachers who need to connect to their students in a down to earth fashion. In the future, we would like to extend this project and make the muscular system overlap the skeletal system. We would make its so the user can switch between them and learn them both almost at the same time. This would be ideal both in the classroom as well as in the field.
