Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Enjoy!

Augmented reality promises astronauts instant medical knowhow | Physorg.com
The Computer Assisted Medical Diagnosis and Surgery System, CAMDASS, is a wearable augmented reality prototype. Augmented reality merges actual and virtual reality by precisely combining computer-generated graphics with the wearer’s view. CAMDASS is focused for now on ultrasound examinations but in principle could guide other procedures. Credits: ESA/Space Applications Service NV
A new augmented reality unit developed by ESA can provide just-in-time medical expertise to astronauts. All they need to do is put on a head-mounted display for 3D guidance in diagnosing problems or even performing surgery.

Augmented Reality [AR] Space Surgery. Daaaamn!
So, remember how yesterday I was talking about the huge potential of AR - even if we don’t yet quite know what we’ll do with it. This is a pretty awesome example. Never occurred to me that we could potentially do something like this. But thinking about it now, yeah, seems possible. And just imagine how this approach could transform skill education in general! Amazing stuff - and as I’ve said before, it’s just the beginning.
