Did Chitti robot live-screening a pregnancy operation in the Endhiran movie fascinate you? Perhaps this may not be far from reality in future! Dr J S Rajkumar, surgeon from Chennai has become the first in the country to live stream an operation. Google glass, which is still under development, has enabled this next step towards a medical revolution. One of its latest offerings, the Google glass is as simple as any glass but just that it is as powerful as a smart phone. By wearing the glass, with simple voice commands, actions like taking a picture, video, sending messages, getting directions, can be done at ease. Dr Rajkumar live streamed the operation to bunch of students 500 meters away. In a country, where the medical infrastructure is poor in rural areas, this high-end technology will help enhance rural health care. 2000 Google glasses have been distributed to various personnel for testing it in real time. Soon medicos can reach to the nook and corner with this gadget.
