Surgeons and anesthesiologists prepped for their next bariatrics surgery: scrubs, masks, gowns, gloves? Check. And then the software engineer geared up: Google Glass, connected and fully charged? Check. They headed into the operating room.
The software engineer was University of Kentucky computer science student Zack Anderson, who watched the surgery from the corner as Dr. Alex Gandsas and an anesthesiologist wore Google Glass technology mounted on their eyeglasses. In the top right corner of the right lenses, they saw the patient's vital signs. Anderson watched as his work was put to the ultimate test, and it passed.
