HP-Zvr-monitor-RightWe’re sure you’ve seen movies and TV shows where the characters in the shows interact with holographic images and are able to manipulate these objects using gestures. Well the good news is that if you wanted to experience that, HP might have something for you that could come pretty close.

HP has recently announced the Zvr virtual reality display that is powered by zSpace technology. Users will be able to interact with the monitor almost like how you see in the TV shows, with some examples offered by HP such as dissecting a frog or exploring an office space, all without having to leave your chair and without having to get messy.

The HP Zvr virtual reality display will offer a 3D stereoscopic parallax display and will allow direct interaction with the device. Users are also able to share what’s on their display with others, such as at a presentation with an optional zView solution that allows users to share the content of the display on regular 2D monitors.

If all of this sounds like something you could be interested in, HP expects the Zvr virtual reality display to be made available in the spring of 2015, but unfortunately pricing is only available upon request, but don’t expect it to come cheap.

thirdeyeGoogle Glass, for those who are unfamiliar, is a headset that places a small screen in front the wearer, thus allowing them to overlay digital information on what they are looking at in real life, such as a map, a camera, and so on. Now we’re not sure how many of you guys actually need to have thermal vision, but in case you wanted one, you might be interested to learn that Round Concept has recently announced an accessory for Google Glass.

This accessory is a prototype called the Third Eye. Basically it’s an attachment that one places on the Google Glass headset and it gives the wearer thermal vision. So what does one need thermal vision for? Well for the average user, maybe they won’t need such a feature, but perhaps it can be used to help screen others for fevers, like at airports where airport personnel can look out for passengers with high temperatures.

According to Ivan Arbouzov, the president and founder of Round Concept, “We will fight Ebola by adding a smart glass to the arsenal of airport personnel and let them immediately identify passengers with fever. It will even work automatically and trigger a daylight camera on the glass to identify the person.”

Alternatively, Third Eye can also be used as a smartphone attachment and other headsets that have image processing capabilities. Round Concept will be demonstrating their product at CES 2015 this week, but no word on when it will be officially launched.

2015 Resolution: Accept that Diseases Hop Borders, Don’t Dismiss Them, and Don’t Panic

In 2014, people over-reacted to Ebola crossing the world, and under-reacted to other diseases that travel. In 2015, we could do better.

Despite the changes around us, the training of physicians has stayed much the same. Sure, there are new work hour limitations and a push to move towards competency-based assessments, but the overall structure of our training remains largely untouched. We spend the vast majority of our time training in hospitals, with the remaining time spent practicing in traditional outpatient clinics.

However, health care is being increasingly delivered outside these two arenas. I recently conducted a home visit for one of my primary care patients. While some physicians may view the home visit as the most traditional of venues to deliver care, it is not a model by which we are currently trained to deliver care. In fact, the home visit is only one of many nontraditional settings through which patients are receiving health care.

Establishing a digital presence is rapidly becoming a necessity for health care professionals, medical practices, and institutions. Yet something that often gets obscured in the discussion is the fact that at its heart, digital media is about people.

As such, it’s about relationships, and it’s about communication, and increasingly, your digital footprint means educating, engaging, and growing your audience.
