Awesome X-Ray Video Shows Beautiful View of Yoga From Within

in Featured, Neato


The rad (short for radiological) folks at Hybrid Medical Animation have developed an incredibly neato way to see how our leg bones are connected to our hip bones, making it animatedly awesome and beautiful with yoga in motion. Check it out.

How the team described their idea:

Our goal for this piece was to create a realistic representation of radiological (x-ray) imaging. Instead of just creating a still image, however, we wanted to combine the beautiful moves of yoga with this new visual approach to bring the full human skeleton to life.

Technical challenges included aspects such as achieving proper bone densities and representing actual bone marrow inside each individual bone.

The result is a profoundly gripping and humbling journey through our skeletal landscape. Enjoy.

    x ray is harmful to the body

      You’re an idiot. First off, this is an animation. They did not take thousands of X rays and put it to motion. Secondly, the benefits out way the risks when using X ray to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. You are subjected to radiation every day. X ray barely adds any to your daily dosage. You clearly know nothing about X rays.

  • I have seen one of these x-ray videos before. And I can’t get enough. It’s beautiful the musical lyrics with the movement of the skeleton. Please do more. Would love to get the organs in.
    I’m taking another anatomy course and can’t wait to show this video.

  • This was so beautiful! I love how they include the upper palate from upward facing dog. Also the float up to handstand is just mesmerizing…I watched it several times. Thank for sharing!
