tj85016 saidyeah surgical loupes with a camera, been around for 15 years - Google trying to make it seem like a big deal.
Believe me, doctors will do anything for press, a contract, or study funding
I work in an OR. Google glass is much different than just a camera attached to loupes. It's more like loupes, plus camera plus the entire effing Internet! Meaning the surgeon can look up the patients scans during the operation and have them projected onto the patient.nor they can skype with a colleague in another country about an unusual case. Regular loupes can't project an operation to India.
And yes, doctors are humans who like new toys. But mostly so they can take good care of patients. Most of them aren't interested in being media whores.
