Google Glass used in the OR for the first time

Here's a little story for all of those detractors who say that Google Glass is nothing more than way to secretly take pictures and video of people hanging around in shady bars; Dr. Rafael Grossmann, of the Eastern Maine Medical Center, just used the device to help him record a surgical procedure. The patient had given his consent, so there was nothing sinister going on...

Now that's what I'm talking about. Tech being used to help save lives, iPads in the dr. office, glass in the OR...nice.

"The Doctor set up a Google Glass Hangout which connected to an Apple iPad which received the live streaming feed from the Google Glass device that he wore."

Fanboys take notes....nothing wrong with appreciating and using whatever device, OS, ect you want to use.

Now you can review your surgery and see the doctor sneeze while performing some type of open whatever surgery, HAHA. Its not funny but just think if the doctor was going over your sucessfull surgery and all the sudden he sneezed and his mask fell off...then you would know why you had the flu after the surgery. Just something to think about.
