From femur to fibula, maxilla to metatarsals, the human
skeleton is one of the body's most amazing structures. Over 200 individual
bones make up the human skeleton including the 26 delicate vertebrae that fit
intricately together to form your backbone. Whether for completing school
assignments of satisfying a simple fascination with the world beneath your
skin. The Ultimate 3D Skeleton gives you accurate, professionally
researched information in a dramatic and compelling state-of-the-art 3D visual
Informative Text. Find out essential facts such as the
length and use of each bone as well as hear correct medical pronunciation. The
authoritative text has been developed by vertebrate experts at the University
3D Skeleton Shot. Take a 3D tour of our fascinating
skeletal system, examine every bone from any angle and view movies showing how
each bone enables us to walk, run, and even swim.

"If you still believe that the head bone is connected to the
neck bone, this in-depth journey through the human skeletal system will set you
straight. Like all DK Multimedia titles, the CD-ROM features beautiful
illustrations, a friendly interface, and brief but informative text. It also
includes detailed 3-D illustrations of all 206 bones in the human body, which
you can rotate and view from any angle. You move through the program by either
clicking on a small rendition of a skeleton or through an index that lists all
the bones in the human body. And if you're struggling with all that Latin, the
program will pronounce the name of each bone for you.
"The Ultimate 3D Skeleton also contains a directory of
'amazing facts' (the hand's lunate bone, for example, acquired its name because
of its crescent-moon shape), as well as a quiz based on the program's contents.
One gripe about the quiz was that the questions range from the
super-challenging (the bones of the hand) to the simple (the hip joint). Still,
the quiz may prove useful as a study aid.
"This program is not designed for younger kids - while it's
easy to use, it is not particularly attention-grabbing, and the graphics appear
a bit cramped within the view screen. But for serious anatomy students or those
who want to go further than their general human anatomy program can take them,
the Ultimate 3D Skeleton fits the niche."
MacAddict, November 1996
"In this highly focused bone dig, you can stare at, flip
around, rotate, and print out every ossified ounce of matter that matters.
Click anywhere on the skeleton at the side of your screen for a close-up view
of a bone. Once the bone is in your sights you can opt for different views or
twirl it around in movie mode."
"DK used multimedia technology to its best with this disc: a
book on the subject be a decent reference, but this disc makes standard text
seem like a bunch of old bones."
