On Abril 14th, 2016, @MedRealities will make it possible for you to go inside the Operating theater (or the OR, as we say in the USA!). On that day, my colleague @ShafiAhmed5 will perform the first Virtual Reality livestreamed surgical procedure, allowing you to watch from INSIDE the surgical suite, and interact with the surgical team, live, as the operation is performed.
If you ask yourself, How do I watch it? Well, it is easy; you need a viewer, any VR viewer (Google Cardboard, VROne, etc.- or just Google it!). The app VRinOR IS ALREADY AVAILABLE for download at the app store of your choice, for free. Really, there’s no excuse to miss this event.
Now, if after watching this fantastic event, you feel that you also want to create your own VR content, go no farther than this amazing post by my friend and colleague @ChristianAssad . Here, he describes every step needed to even put together your own “Home-made” 360 degree camera.

I hope you don’t miss this amazing opportunity to experience live surgery and the Virtual Reality that everyone is talking about.
