FDA approves HoloLens powered medical augmented reality system


HoloLens seems to be future

Microsoft's HoloLens is an incredible piece of technology that tackles a number of real world applications. The FDA has approved the "glasses" system for medical use.

It concerns the OpenSight Augmented Reality System, a platform designed for HoloLens to help surgeons plan procedures using the headset.

HoloLens allows not only a single user, but an entire group, to view a patients medical images laid onto their body in real time, as well as having implications for training. The system can also enable the surgeons to view an accurate internal representation of their patients without the need to open them up. Medical students can use the system to perform practice procedures, too, and while HoloLens remains an extremely expensive device, its potential uses continue to impress.
