Sony adapts video game tool for use by surgeons

Kudos to the Sony Corporation for a recent adaptation of their head-mounted personal 3D video display for use by surgeons.  The Objective Standard has the account in a post yesterday:
Sony’s new headset receives and processes video from an endoscope, or small surgical camera, used in minimally invasive surgeries. Once the surgeon receives the enhanced video stream, he can manipulate the images by changing their display from 3D to 2D; by flipping the video to different display angles; or by turning on a “picture-in-picture” display, simultaneously providing the surgeon with two different views of the surgery.
Great stuff and congrats and appreciation to the folks at Sony for helping surgeons help others!  BTW, here's the news release in case you're interested.
