The Ultimate Human Body
What happens when people sleep? How does the heart beat? This CD-ROM offers an interactive journey inside the human body to discover what every part of the body is called, where it is situated, what it looks like, and how it functions. Through three intuitive search paths: "The Body Machine" explains how the body carries out complex processes such as seeing and hearing, using interactive questions and answers; "The Body Organs" focuses on the body's individual components; "The Body Systems" shows how the organs work together to perform important functions. This blend of 3-D images, micro-photography, illustrations, animations, sounds, and text shows how the body works. There are 90,000 words spoken and written text, more than 1,000 illustrations, over 700 screens and pop-up windows, over 100 animations and 45 minutes of audio. To run these CD-ROMS an IBM or compatible PC is needed with 386SX/25 MHz or faster microprocessor with 4Mb RAM, MPC-compatible CD-ROM drive and sound card, SVGA 256-colour display, a mouse, loudspeakers or headphones, Microsoft Windows version 3.1.
