Body Planet is an educational project, based on Augmented Reality (AR) that aims to make children learn anatomy and the functioning of the human body, in a playful and close way. Being based on RA technology, it allows creating digital environments in real images and objects, connecting them to each other. This makes it easier to learn the concepts associated with the real world.
The Body Planet teaching proposal is divided into two options: Body Planet Magic T-shirt, more thought for the home environment, and Body Planet Doll Amparo, solution adapted for collective learning in the classrooms of schools.
The operation of the shirt is very simple, since it consists only of the item of clothing and a free download app that scans the image of the shirt and shows the body parts on the screen. The version of the shirt includes the systems and organs of the trunk part.
Once the app is downloaded, it can be used without an Internet connection.
In relation to the complete Body Planet solution for the Classrooms, it is based on a magnetic doll with 9 magnetized pieces that are placed on it and that have content to reproduce with a linked app. The pedagogical content is displayed in this innovative way, thanks to 3D animation technologies and augmented reality.
Body Planet begins to be an increasingly widespread solution in the school environment and one of the most recommended in terms of examples of educational apps based on Augmented Reality. Among the most outstanding recognitions, we can name the following: winner of the SEK Lab Awards 2017, “el chupete” Award, the 10 Best apps for Children. 2018 and SIMO Education Award 2017.
