VRML plugin possibilities and explanation
as used on www.bioanim.com
We recommend the Flux plugin for VRML. It manages also X3D,
which is the next generation of VRML.
Here is the download link for the Cortona plugin:

Originally we recommended Cosmo Player VRML plugin for your
web browser. But since spring 2006 the Cosmo Player does not work anymore
with the Internet Explorer web browser (IE). This problem is most likely
caused by the cumulative security patch for IE.
If one uninstalls the patch, then Cosmo Player in IE works.
Cosmo Player has been used since 1997 and we do not know for a single security problem connected with it. So if it happens that Cosmo Player runs on your machine, you can feel safe to use it.
Many Cosmo player download locations have ceased to operate. However, it is still possible to obtain it.

Tablets are optimal for science education in 3D virtual reality. This is my experience after working on this field since 1996. Here are two main reasons for this: 1. Computer tablets and smartphones are powerful enough and commonly accessible machines, always at the hand. 2. We use fingers to navigate and so intimately connect ourselves with the happening on the screen. Fingers are our primary "interface" for handling the world around us and so also the optimal interface for interacting with virtual reality.
