Based on the Gray’s Anatomy, a famous medical book about anatomy, Humanoscope is an application about learning anatomy. That questions the digital becoming of medical books : how can they evolve in harmony with their story ? Humanoscope appears as a compass, a guide which helps students in this complex and long learning. The body is composed of nine parts (head and neck, thorax, back, abdomen, upper limbs, pelvis, lower limbs, embryogenesis, cells tissues and systems) and each part is divided into eight layers (surface, muscles, bones, organs, cardiovascular system, nervous system, lymphatic system, microscopic anatomy). The application focuses on the construction of the body, not on its visual representation : it is simplified through parts and layers. It is aimed at helping students to appropriate the contents and it helps them to follow their progress. It favours understanding through interactions. The shape evolves as students learn, thus materializing progress.
