Hacked Kinect being used by doctors at Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto, Canada

Doctors at Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto, Canada have taken interactive gaming to the next level when they hooked up a Kinect console to their medical imaging computer. Now when in the operating room, doctors can have direct access to MRI scans, without having to disinfect, leave the operating room, consult the scans, and then scrub back in. This hack allows them to virtually manipulate the scans and retrieve the necessary information by pulling it up on screen with a wave of their hand.

  1. Nice shot from Firefly! That particular episode is one of my favorite!

  2. I would go to any hospital that the Dr.’s wore futuristic mock turtlenecks.

  3. Yup one of my favorite episodes also….too bad Firefly isn’t still on. Castle just isn’t quite up to the job.

  4. John Craig, you can watch reruns of Firefly on Science Channel — and there’s some discussion that they’re contemplating reviving the series again if there’s enough interest. Tune in!
