Google Glass lent a helping hand for an orthopedic surgeon from University of Alabama-Birmingham as he used the device to seek professional advice during a shoulder replacement surgery.
Google's contribution to technology can let an expert lend a helping hand in the operating room, even when he or she is in another part of the world, CBS News reported.
AdvertisementDr. Brent Ponce acquired the help of Dr. Phani Dantuluri, who was 150 miles away in Atlanta, during the shoulder replacement procedure.
Dr. Dantuluri could not only see, but actually offer her virtual help to Ponce who wore the wearable computer that sent a live video of the procedure via a built-in camera.
Ponce described first putting on the Google Glass as a "little bit of a light bulb experience".
