Sharing Scientific Data via Social Media
Sketchfab recently announced that it has become an official partner of Microsoft HoloLens, along with other amazing organizations such as NASA, Disney, Unity and Autodesk. The HoloLens was unveiled in January of this year. This device lets you bring virtual objects and scenes into your own environment, the best of both worlds between VR and AR. In addition, you can now embed these interactive structures into Facebook!
To test if we could use this new technology to share biological structures via social media, we are converting PDB files and Cryo-EM maps into Sketchfab. You can share any of the structures below via copying and pasting the embed code into Facebook!
