I conducted a project for the Moveo fundation with Dr Thomas Gregory, Professor of Surgery and Medicine, at the Paris Descartes University and surgeon at the European Hospital Georges Pompidou. We used consumer technology to provide a new way to capture a surgery. Two synchronized GoPros cameras were placed on the Dr Gregory’s head while he was performing a total hip replacement.
The footage is great : you get a Hi-res 3D version of the surgery with a great field of view. Watching the scene with the Oculus Rift is a great experience : you are as close as you’ll ever be of being a surgeon.
You can try it there if you have a Rift.
