Submission + - Surgeon Performs First Remote Augmented Reality Surgery With Google Glass (kurzweilai.net)

line72 writes: The world's first Remote Augmented Reality surgery just took place at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Utilizing Google Glass and VIPAAR's virtual presence technology, two surgeons collaborated remotely in real time throughout the live operation. Dr. Ponce of UAB performed the surgery in Birmingham, AL while wearing Google Glass. Using VIPAAR, Dr. Dantuluri was able to see a live image of the case as well as reach his hands and tools into the real surgical field from Atlanta, GA. Dr. Ponce could see Dr. Dantuluri's hands and tools floating in the live surgical field using Glass. Their shared first-person Augmented-Relaity view greatly enhanced their collaboration and discussion of the live procedure. Here's a video of the interaction.
