Making Medical Dummies Less Dumb
A GROUP of industrial designers are ready to revolutionize the simulation technology used to train future doctors and nurses. The designers from the University of South Australia have lodged patent applications for a novel diagnostic tool that uses spatial augmented reality (SAR) to project the appearance of disease, disorder or trauma onto the moving surface of medical manikins.
Two Days to Design at IDSA Medical Conference
Our colleagues have written before about the differences between interaction designers and industrial designers. So when we flew to the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) in Tampa a few weeks ago to lead an interaction design workshop at the inaugural IDSA Medical Design Conference, we were wondering if we’d feel like we were from Mars.

Intel will be supplying the electronic brains for the next generation of Google Glass, effectively immersing the chip giant into the wearables market. In addition to the tech itself, Intel plans to promote Glass to companies such as hospital networks and manufacturers, while developing new workplace uses for the device.
