The Glass Horse

Product Spotlight

Presenting the first 3D interactive examination of the equine gastrointestinal tract. The Glass horse is an innovative interactive program that helps horse owners and veterinarians understand the anatomy of the equine gastrointestinal tract and what can go wrong in horses with colic.

Delivered on CD, the program includes photorealistic animations depicting the normal anatomy and some of the more common abnormalities that occur to cause the horse to feel abdominal pain. Using stat-of-the-art animation techniques (the same as used for the movies "Toy Story" and "Shrek"), the program allows users to see "into" the horse in order to view all portions of the gastrointestinal anatomy. The animations are accompanied by text and audio tracts describing what the viewer is seeing.

The project is the collaboration of three unique professionals at the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine: Dr. Jim Moore, a professor in the Department of Large Animal Surgery; Thel Melton, a 3-D computer graphic artist; and Dr. Mac Smith, an instructional developer and multimedia designer. More than four years in the making, the program's goal is to help users envision the anatomy both as a whole and as individual organs and presents animations that show the processes that occur during various kinds of colic.
