iPod assisted surgery: Why it’s not such a crazy idea
Posted July 31, 2011
So DashTM has given us the technology to perform a knee replacement without the need for bulky technology. In fact, the technology is already widely used (although not normally for medical procedures) and can fit in your pocket.
I present the “iPod surgery!” (Click the link to see it in action!)
For techies, this is “way cool” because it opens up a whole new field of uses for existing technologies, and I’m sure Apple is very happy. Considering this is just a way to publicize the processing power and abilities of one of their products.
Surgeons should be ecstatic because any way to make a complicated surgery easier is always welcome.
Lets just hope they charged their iPods last night.
