Human Body / Drug Simulations Alberto & Emma
Human Body Simulations
Human body simulations are a recap of your body. This is of much use as you can see in the simulations what could happen to your body in many different circumstances without having to suffer as the person being affected is the body in the computer and not yours.
This simulation is also good because you can find what happens to bacteria in your body, etc.
Video which shows a simulation of how bacteria works in our body. “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jreKHCfNmkQ”
These baby simulator are often used to teach newlyweds on how to be “good parents”. The babies cry, poop, move, yell… They do absolutely everything that a real baby does.
Parents have to feed them, change their diapers, play with them, etc.
Even though this simulator is not computer based, it gives a clear example of what can happen to a baby in certain circumstances engaging the parents in an interaction with a robotic baby.
This is a new powerful software that will help in the fight againstsuperbugs by tackling them in a more effective way.
This is done by a computer software which can predict how the bugs will react while they are treated with different kinds of medicines and in different amount applied.
This is a great discovery and of great aid due to the fact that dctors will now be able to treat patients with medicines which will fight bugs in their body in the most effective way (which will save many lives.)
Drug Reaction Simulations
Drug reaction simulations work according to your body. This is the case that you can create an virtual image of what can happen to your body if a certain drug is added in it.
Drug reaction simulations can also be used to find out what can happen to certain bacterias if a drug is inserted to them. This simulation can be used by research doctors who are in the search for a cure to some disease.

Human Body Simulations & Drug Reaction Simulations. This transparent reality simulation implemented with Adobe Director uses a network of 6,934 cells to predict drug distribution in the spinal cavity using a heuristic modeling technique. [vam.anest.ufl.edu]
This is also a great advance in technology as doctors job will be facilitated as they can use this program to ensure that the area where they insert the anesthesia and the amount will last the entire operation without having to worry that the patient will wake up in the middle of it.
Virtual body parts take the guesswork out of medicine. (Example 2)
This new inovating simulation enables you to know what will happen if certain drugs are introduced into your body without having to run the risk of getting an allergy / incetion from it as it is not really inserted in your body.
This simulation re-creates exactly all the characteristics from your body and basically is a “Clone” from your real body, therefore it will give a ery detail and exact response of what will happen when your system is changed or altered with the use of drugs.
With this technology lives could be saved as people who might be allergic to some medications will not receive them as they will first test the drug into the simulation and afterwards implement it on your body.
Unemployment- People would be made redundant
Legislation- Would governments allow simulations? Or would they implement certain laws?
Psychology- Is it healthy to have simulations on a day-to-day basis?
Cultural- Would society accept all types of simulations?
Accuracy- To what extent can we ‘trust’ simulations?
Is it fair that graduated doctors are being replaced by machines?
Would you trust your life to an automated machine?
Which diseases can simulations include and which ones wouldn’t it include?
When should you stop using a simulation? (eg: When should you quit on having a simulated baby? Is it healthy?)
Who would you blame if the simulation fails?
Who is responsible to operate the simulations?
Application to Oobunta
As many people did not live further than 50 years old, the human body simulation could be helpful in order to see how our body would react depending on the different circumstances one is being exposed to.
In addition, the drug simulation can be also used to help the few doctors decide upon different medicines in order to see its reaction.
