VR in the Heart and Circulatory System

Today we are going into the human heart.  You are to watch the videos below in order to see the inside workings of the human heart and circulatory system.

Warning: read these instructions carefully to view the videos correctly.

To do this you will need to use either the VR headsets in class or just the youtube app on a smart device.

Note: do not watch the videos in these direct links if using a smart device or you will not get the 360 effect.  Also, when using a smart device you will need to touch the cardboard icon to make it stereoscopic in your viewer (if using vr headset).  Since you are searching on the youtube app please search fro the appropriate title indicated for each video.

If you are not using a cardboard or vr headset you can also just use the youtube app on your smart device or a netbook/laptop and use your mouse to look around inside the video.

Start with the video below to see how the inside of a blood vessel looks with the red blood cells floating within the plasma.  Search for “celluvr”

Next. watch the video below.  Search for “human circulatory system” by getschoolednow.  If you want to watch this video in vr then just hit the settings icon and select the cardboard icon


Once you have watched the heart video check out this vr representation that puts you fight into the right ventrical of the heart.

And finally, just for fun, here is the cartoony representation of the human heart.
