Enter the Z Dimension

ZView capture of LASD boyIf STEM education seems, well, a little flat, zSpace has the answer: a 3-D education zone that puts the emphasis on science and technology. The system consists of a 24-inch monitor that requires a pair of polarizing 3-D glasses to get the 3-D effect. Not only do items appear to come out of the screen, but you can control and rotate them with the included electronic pen. The company’s STEM Lab is just as good for simulating the dissection of a frog as it is for showing Newton’s laws of motion or designing electric circuits. The system requires a high-end PC and costs about $60,000 for 12 screens and computers.
