A Hand‐Eye Calibration Method for Augmented Reality Applied to Computer‐Assisted Orthopedic Surgery

In this article authors present a new calibration method to increase the precision of the position for a Hololens. Using external system combined with embedded SLAM and a “hand‐eye” based approach, it could be possible to lowered uncertainty on Virtual/Real position close to 3 mm. Augmented reality (AR) allows the surgeon to represent holographic patient‐specific anatomical information and surgical instruments on the physical world. To correctly superimpose virtual and physical objects, a hand‐eye calibration method…

It’s dangerous to think virtual reality is an empathy machine

Are immersive technologies (and of course VR) THE right tools to share and to develop empathy? According to Erick Ramirez (assistant professor in philosophy at Santa Clara University) it is not so clear because it’s really difficult to put a frontier between empathy and sympathy. Results such as these have led Bailenson and others to hail VR as a modern-day empathy machine. VR researchers tell us that simulations can let us see what it’s like…
