It’s my son’s birthday and I was struggling to figure out a meaningful gift for a young techy Ph.D father of two with an oncologist wife until divine intervention put this TED talk by Alexander Tsiaras in my inbox today.
Alexander Tsiaras’s work has been featured on over 85 covers of magazines such as Life (including an entire edition of Life devoted to his anatomical computer renderings), TIME, New York Times Magazine, Discover, Smithsonian, GEO, and the London Sunday Times Magazine. He is the author of From Conception to Birth: a Life Unfolds and The Architecture and Design of Man and Woman: The Marvel of the Human Body, Revealed. This is also the topic of the TED talk during which he unveils a spectacular video where we witness the symphony of the body systems working in concert during fetal development to become a human being.
Tsiaris operates Anatomical Travelogue, a virtual camera studio that enables him to view, scan, enlarge and rotate any part or all of the human body so that we can view and light the inside a living being from any angle.
Anatomical Travelogue owns the largest 3D library of real, segmented human data in the world - from the molecular level up to gross anatomy- based on actual patient data acquired from MRIs, CT Scans, Electron Microscopy and other medical imaging technologies.
Alexander Tsiaras and his crew make all of this available to us on their Health portal website called the Visual MD. From the Nine Visual Rules of Wellness to Managing Diabetes, you will be amazed by the clarity of the information using the visuals that Tsiaras has pioneered.
Eli, marvel at Tsiaras’s TED Talk and his Visual MD with your family. Happy birthday and many many more.
