This genius health care invention aims to help patients through projection.

Often, when a doctor consults a patient on how to care and cure an injured body part, patients have difficulty visualizing what's actually happened inside their body. The Microsoft Research 'AnatOnMe' hopes to abolish this difficulty by catering to visual learners through on-patient projection.

Tech researchers in the Microsoft Research team deserve a "bone-us" for creating this brilliant invention. The technology is actually quite simple; during a consultation, the therapist examines the injury and takes photos of the patient using the webcam-wielding handheld device. Then, they are able to construct accurate images of the patient's injury using stock images and project them onto the skin of the patient. This helps the patient visually see his injury, and understand how to cure it.
