I wrote a book “The Guide to the Future of Medicine: Technology AND The Human Touch” to prepare everyone for the coming waves of change, to be a guide for the future of medicine that anyone can use. It describes 22 trends and technologies that I think will shape the future.

A great article was published about how augmented reality mirrors will take telepresence to a new level.
They have invented a system that utilizes a camera and a flat panel display that will provide you an experience of looking at the mirror. The system utilizes technologies like augmented reality and adaptive image transformation for implementing this. When the image stream from the camera is displayed on the screen, it appears to mimic a reflection in a mirror, rather than a recorded video stream.
The opportunities it could provide in medicine are imminent:
A doctor can use this mirror for patient diagnostic and patient monitoring. For example, better imaging could be used for diagnosing skin problems, cancer, melanoma, breast changes that can suggest further testing for breast cancer, eye problems, spine, bones, muscles and body flexibility trends and changes.
