TCM at CIFTIS: Hundred-year-old cultural relic turns into intelligent teaching tool

An intelligent bronze statue has dazzled visitors at the China International Fair for Trade in Services. It was made based on the cultural relic "Bronze Acupuncture Statue" preserved in the National Museum, which was an examination instrument for medical professionals during the reign of Emperor Guangxu of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

The teacher covered the surface of the statue with wax and poured water from the top of the head. Water would flow out if the student inserted the correct acupoint, meaning the student passed the exam. 

Now, the statue is intelligent. Every acupoint turns into a button. By pressing the buttons, students can learn about the story and function of the acupoints on the screen.
