Kinect Fusion-powered concept demos AR brain models for neurosurgeons (video)

Microsoft has talked up its Kinect Fusion tool since 2011, but it took some time at TechFest this week to show off how the software could be useful in operating rooms. For those who need a refresher, Redmond's solution can create 3D models of whatever an attached Kinect sensor lays eyes on, but in this instance it was leveraged to create an augmented reality experience. Using an off-the-shelf Kinect camera duct-taped to a tablet, Microsoft researchers layered a model of a brain onto a mannequin's head, making its would-be mind viewable on the slate from different angles. Ballmer and Co. reckon that neurosurgeons could use the technique to visualize what's in a patient's noggin and plan how they'll guide their scalpel. Word that Fusion would come to the Kinect for Windows SDK first surfaced last year, but Microsoft now says it'll hit the dev kit's next release, which should arrive shortly. Head past the break to catch a video of the medical concept app in action. (Kinect, Microsoft, PC, Tech)

You see how deep the poison runs. Here you have kinect technology being used in a way that can save live, and is very advanced but it the poison programed into these people brains is so deep they cant even acknowledge the advance.

They still want to believe all of the non accurate, lag filled doesnt work in darkness lies they have been given.

Its sad that these gamers have missed out on something so great. I'm not upset with them I really just fill sorry for them.
