Virtual reality is rapidly making its way into mainstream culture. Having found variousapplications in gaming and filmmaking, the technology is now tackling the education sector.

Available on Steam and Oculus Store for free, The Body VR is a short educational experience that takes you on a thrilling tour inside the human body.

Placing you directly into the bloodstream, this beautiful simulation will help you understand how the human body works down to the tiniest of detail.

Travelling through various parts of the human body, you’ll feel fully immersed as you get a clear perspective on how a cell works.

To make the experience even more informative, The Body VR is accompanied by a soothing voiceover commentary.

What’s particularly cool about this experience is that it also lets you effortlessly interact with cells and organelles to better grasp how the human body functions.

Not every machine can handle The Body VR though. Here are the minimum system requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel i5 2Ghz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 970
  • Storage: 400 MB available space

All in all, The Body VR is a truly incredible display of the possibilities that virtual reality holds and it genuinely excites me about the future of education.
