Stick a pin in it…

So, with the Dactyl viewer just about done, we’ve moved our attention to the ‘Pro’ version. This will do all the things that the standard viewer can do, but with added functions. The one we’re testing at the moment is the ability to stick a little pin in the model. Not only does this look pretty, but it brings up a text box in which you can type all manner of info. So, as a teacher, you might want to describe some pathological feature, or as a student, you might want to pin something and type “What on earth is this..?”. It’s going to be really useful in lab sessions where students can use the models to supplement their other osteology teaching.
