Google Glasses and Augmented Reality in Medicine

This video has been circulating in many of my social media networks in the past couple of days. It shows how glasses could include augmented reality and Google’s online services mashed up:

Imagine this in the OR when doctors can “see through” patients by mixing the picture they see and radiology images. Then imagine adding additional information and accessing those through eye movements.

  1. OK, I thought google glasses were like google goggles or beer goggles. I thought it referenced the google biased information patients find when they do a search. Like when a patient opts to use “black strap molasses” to treat their metastatic prostate cancer because they read it on the internet.
