    The InvisibleEar ™ app is a 3D augmented reality app specifically for biogical and medical investigation of the gross anatomy of the ear as well as the structure of the inner ear with particular attention drawn to the perilymph, endolymph of the cochlea and the petrous temporal bone using highly detailed CT data. It is aimed at high school, post 16 and medical students as well as hearing specialists. The user can either buy a 3D printed model or print glyphs that the app then engages with via the 3D AR in order for the user investigate the positive and negative spaces of the particular anatomy of the ear. It is even possible for the glyph source to be obtained from other medical references.

    We love this quick quirky interactive game for identifying bones within the human body suitable for 10 years of age and above. The game is based on the online game and has a simple layout and great pirate themed graphics. Although the voices and music will drive you mad after a while (you can turn it off) the game is highly addictive and will get your students perfecting the names of the human bones within minutes. It does become a little frustrating that you need to get every answer correct to move onto the next level however, this is great fun!

    Visual Anatomy is a reference app that teaches students about human anatomy and physiology. Students can learn the names and functions of human organs and other structures, as well as terminology and locations related to surface anatomy. Diagrams help students visualize locations of internal body structures, and being able to tap and read about a structure is extremely convenient. The app includes lots of interactive content for students to learn, but most of it is nicely organized by body system.

    Everyone is curious what the lies beyond the skin. Frogs have been a long time model of understanding the function, position and relative size of organs, tissues, and systems. This is an excellent use of touch-driven educational activity that also happens to be odorless and environmentally sensitive. This app might be used instead of a frog dissection lab or as a pre-lab preparation exercise. It gives students an appreciation of the layers of a frog's tissue in a system approach to anatomy and function. Students drive a scalpel or scissors with their fingertips, 'lift' tissues or organs out of the way, and spin organs around while the narrator explains what they are seeing on the screen. Frog Dissection is best for high school biology students.
