How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Can Revolutionize Science?

In this article, Martijn Roelandse introduces a “mixed-reality Hackathon” hosted by Springer Nature and dedicated to exploration of new uses of AR and VR in sciences. It’s very interesting to see that today, many 3D observations (made with confocal devices for example) are still seen on 2D screens! Immersive technologies could revolutionize it, maybe more fastly then we think. With the arrival of the fifth wave of computing, amazing techniques like artificial intelligence, blockchain and…

Augmented Reality Allows Specialists to Provide Care in Remote Locations

A team for Purdue University recently presents a system to help health care workers “in the field”. With this teleoperation tool presented at the 2018 Military Health System Research Symposium, experienced surgeons could be virtually anywhere to give advice to local operator. “In this sense, people wearing our AR telementoring device would be able to receive extra information as they operate, in addition to maintaining all the visual and motor capabilities they would normally have,” Edward Rojas…

Augmented reality for interventional oncology: proof-of-concept study of a novel high-end guidance system platform

In this article, a team from Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Centre (Jerusalem) presents a AR tool to increase the precision of guidance in interventional oncology. With “Endosight” (system name) the team reports a accuracy of less than 5 mm to guide needle thought patient. Even if many things have to be improved (like the compensation of breath) it seems really encouraging. Augmented reality can assist with needle guidance with great target accuracy for interventional procedures…
