The most beautiful viruses your computer will catch

We want you to willingly install one of our viruses onto your computer. Or maybe a bacteriophage. Or a white blood cell. Don’t worry — you won’t need virus protection. We’re spreading these viruses to serve as your new digital wallpaper.

XVIVO Medical Animation - Wallpaper sizes

At XVIVO, we live at the intersection of art and science. It’s an exciting, exhilarating place to be.

Everyday, our clients come to us fresh from inventing the future, and ask us to help others see what they see. Now we want to share some of that beauty with you. Feel free to pass it along via Twitter, Facebook , Google+, Pinterest, or anywhere else your virtual travels may take you.

You see, we’re hoping for a …. viral effect.

At XVIVO Scientific Animation, our goal is to advance knowledge by translating complex concepts into compelling visuals. We work with innovators across science and medicine to develop elegant and precise medical animations, medical illustrations, and medical interactive productions.

I wanted to thank XVIVO for creating the animation and doing so at record speed! I received wonderful feedback from people at TED about the video – everyone thought it was so cool and wanted to know who made it.
