Surgeon In UK Uses Google Glass to Live Stream Surgical Operation

With Google Glass comes the empowering nature of having a head mounted camera and ready-made apps which is really starting to show now as the device gets a wider user base. A couple of days back we saw the tennis legend Roger Federer wearing the Glass during his match but who would have thought that the headset would one day be put to use in the medical field?

A surgeon can not only rely on books for knowledge because there is only so much that can be learned from the books. Such a complicated profession requires real-world insight into various techniques involved in different procedures and hence those studying to become surgeons must first see how the task is performed in reality. Thanks to Google Glass, this is not going to be a problem at all. One surgeon has successfully streamed live an operation on a cancer patient in the UK.

This was not an ordinary operation and this is the first time that a doctor has performed such an act. In the operational procedure, a cancerous tumor was removed from the patient’s liver and bowel with 13,000 medical students tuning in live from over 115 countries. We can now see to what extent the Glass has been used and its benefits are not just limited like the ordinary consumer products.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
