INSIDE OUT: The new 'Body Worlds Decoded' show opens up the human body at The Tech.

Ever wonder what a live heart looks like as it beats, or how muscles contract? Thanks to the ingenuity of German anatomist Gunther von Hagens, we can now see our innermost workings without access to a cadaver lab. His plastination process preserves bodies by replacing the water and fat with plastics, allowing the specimens to be touched and seen in their original form. Since 1995, his traveling anatomical exhibition, Body Worlds, has drawn millions of visitors worldwide. Body Worlds Decoded puts a Silicon Valley twist on the original exhibit, with interactive and augmented reality components.
