Augmented-reality t-shirt reveals your insides

Point your phone at someone wearing the Virtuali-Tee and you'll see their rib cage, beating heart and more. In your face, X-ray vision!

Call it "gaze anatomy."

The Virtuali-Tee is an augmented-reality t-shirt that reveals exactly what's going on inside your body. Specifically, when someone aims a phone or tablet at you, they'll see an animated, x-ray-style image of your innards. Creepy? Maybe a little, but also seriously cool and very educational.

This is easier shown than explained, so take a look:

So that's the augmented-reality version. You can tap on selected areas (the heart, the digestive system, etc.) to go further inside and learn more about the body.

In fact, when paired with a VR headset (anything from Google Cardboard to Mattel View-Master to Samsung Gear VR), the Virtuali-Tee app takes you on virtual tours of these areas.

Developer Curiscope is seeking around $100,000 to turn this concept into a reality. As of this writing, the Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $13,000, with nearly a month left to go.

Early backers can get the shirt (in choice of size and color) and app for around $25, £18, AU$35. After the campaign, Curiscope expects to sell the shirts for $40, £30, AU$60. Delivery is planned for August, though as with any crowdfunded project, that's just an estimate.

What do you think? Is this something you'd back? Or do you prefer to leave innards to the imagination?
