Where it is going

Just have a look at where virtual reality is going.

Announced at the London Wearable Technology Show today, The Virtual Surgeon is the first captured 360 degree recording of a medical operation, intended for use in the UK. It follows a laparoscopic right hemicolectomy procedure as carried about by company co-founder Dr Shafi Ahmed at St Bartholomew’s Hosptial, London. Dr Ahmed is no stranger to using new technologies to enhance medical training; last year saw him perform the first live-stream of an operation using the Google Glass AR HMD, which was watched live by some 13,000 surgical students across 115 countries.
