How long did the surgery last? My experience so far is that you can get a maximum of about one hour battery life from Glass when using video.
Was the resolution and video quality sufficient for the remote surgeon to really see what was going on? Again, personal experience only, but everyone I've made a video call with over Glass has reported very choppy low-res streams.
I'd love a lot more details on the procedure, what went right and what could have worked better, and just how it was done.
"This thing happened" isn't a lot of useful information.
The resolution was good enough for the remote proctor to assist. We did notice that as the device got warm as the surgery progressed, quality seemed to decrease a little. Overall I think we were really pleased though with the reliability and quality; we didn't experience any drops, or much packet loss or jitter.
I would say the biggest hurdle was audio. Because the version of Glass we used relied on bone conduction and didn't have an available earpiece, it made it pretty difficult at times for the surgeon to hear his remote proctor, especially since there was a lot of sawing and suction going on.
If there's a more detailed report of the event up anytime, please share. It's fascinating stuff.
I'm also slightly surprised that there are no focus problems: the Glass display is made so that it appears to be significantly further away than 40-50cm that you have between the surgeon and the operating field.
That has contributed to some adverse outcomes.
Misadventures in Health Care - Inside Stories has a chapter on "The Laparoscopic Surgeon's Posture". http://www.amazon.co.uk/Misadventures-Health-Care-Inside-Sto...
The book is a bit old now, 2003, so I hope the layout of equipment is better nowadays.
Better title would probably be "First Ever Virtual/Augmented Reality Assisted Surgery"
And that was roughly the original title, pre-editing.
Which would actually be pretty fun as a VR app.
