Digital twin from Dassault Systèmes – CES 2022
At CES 2022, to be held in Las Vegas from January 5-8, 2022., Dassault Systèmes will allow visitors to interact with a virtual copy of the twin human body and learn about the possibilities that this technology can offer to the health sector.
Guests who visit the Dassault Systèmes booth (#8715), located in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s North Hall, will be able to participate in three interactive presentations focused on human body virtual twin technology. This brand new branch of biological and health sciences allows us to visualize, test, explain and predict what cannot be seen with the naked eye; from the effects of drugs on disease to the effects of surgery even before treatment begins.
The series of presentations begins with a volumetric light experiment, which, starting from a photo taken of the participant, displays a virtual twin copy of his head in magnification. This mirror image becomes translucent until it reveals a rotating brain that pulsates in colors and patterns that symbolize various medical conditions. Next, the visitor will see an animation of a heart. With each heartbeat, the virtual twin enlarges until it grows into particles, revealing a silhouette of the visitor, who can dance and move to interact with his virtual twin before it dissolves into a cloud of data.
The participant can also take part in presentations using augmented reality as part of “The Living Heart” and “The Living Brain” projects. Both initiatives are currently being used by researchers, scientists, device manufacturers and physicians to create highly accurate virtual models to replicate conditions and treatment options. Attendees will be able to hold 3D printed replicas of the heart and brain in their hands and rotate and squeeze them. Each replica will be equipped with sensors and processors, and participants’ actions will be mapped in real time onto a virtual twin displayed on a connected touchscreen. The physical heart model measures the participant’s heart rate during the presentation, while its virtual twin copy pulses in a consistent rhythm and displays the measurement. While interacting with a physical model of the brain, a participant can study its hemispheres on a virtual twin to learn more about their functions.
In addition to these presentations, visitors to the Dassault Systèmes booth will be able to participate in a staged clinical trial to learn how Medidata solutions are being used to develop the latest drugs and vaccines.
