Educational app Froggipedia allows you to do the kind of things that have not happened in a school classroom for decades.
If you’re squeamish, look away now, because we’re talking about dissection. More specifically, cutting open, removing and studying the organs of a frog. But don’t worry, it’s not a real frog. It’s just a realistic-looking virtual one.
Froggipedia instructs you on where to make appropriate incisions and tells you exactly what you’re looking at inside the virtual frog cadaver.
But the app doesn’t stop there. As well as teaching you about the life cycle of a frog – from egg, to tadpole to adulthood – those running iOS 11 using newer models of the iPhone and iPad, can use AR to bring a virtual, live frog into the room.
Point your device at a flat surface and froggy will appear on your screen, as though on your floor or desk. Now you can examine the breathing frog, looking at every one of its bodily functions. The app helps you to identify everything from specific arteries in the circulatory system to every bone in its skeleton.
Frogs are strange creatures; Froggipedia will amaze you with their weirdness and demystify them all at the same time.
