New iPad app celebrates Leonardo as anatomist

Who says you can’t take it with you: The Royal Collection revealed a new iPad app that offers zoomable high-resolution images of, and other nifty toys with, all 268 anatomical studies by Leonardo da Vinci in their collection. The app has been launched in conjunction with its current exhibition Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomist (4 May-7 October, 2012) at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, London. Alongside the images are interactive tools like 3D anatomical models, a “magic spyglass” that reverses the artist’s mirror handwriting, and a translation of his notes with just a tap of the finger.
