RETHINK fellow Dr. Jan Hiss presents the “Molegram Explorer” app for the HoloLens

Accompanied by a theatrical performance, RETHINK fellow Jan Hiss took the participants of the WORLDWEBFORUM on a journey to the world of molecules. During the performance, colorful holograms of molecular structures hovered on stage and mesmerized the audience. The Molegram Explorer is a “mixed reality” application for HoloLens glasses. This new technology helps both students and researchers alike to improve their understanding of 3D molecular surfaces and the basic concepts of ligand-receptor interaction. This project was realized with support of the LET department of ETH and the company afca. ETH Zurich is a scientific partner of the WORLDWEBFORUM. The annual meeting of outcome-oriented executives took place in Zurich on January 17, 2019.
