In an exciting and curious recently announced collaboration, we may be a lot closer than we think to virtual reality hospital experiences. A multi-year deal between the Miami Children's Hospital and Next Galaxy Corporation will see the two collaborate on a potential application of the technology during emergency situations.
When developed, the Miami Children's Hospital will be able to offer more realistic training to medical professionals used to learning on paper or through a textbook. By creating more realistic exposure for doctors to acclimate to, hospitals can insure that in addition to the technical instructions doctors can be prepared for the mental trials.
The interesting incorporation of the VR technology will also be able to use eye-gaze tracking and control technology to ensure procedures are executed as accurately as possible.
