Remember Snapchat’s ‘Spectacles?’
Yeah, the likelihood of having Spectacles in Nigeria is:
Anyway, according to Self via TNW, a London-based doctor, Dr. Shafi Ahmed, used ‘Spectacles’ to document a hernia repair surgery — a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia — a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it — at the London Independent Hospital.
Many Nigerian parents would probably freak out at this point, but Doctor Ahmed did this for a purpose. He told Time he did it so his medical students could watch it as a tutorial.
I’ve always thought about the way we teach. How do you use these wearables in the clinical workspace for practice and also educational purposes?
“It’s not about one-to-one or one-to-two for me. It’s about one-to-many, that’s my drive.”
So how many students watched his snap? About 150 to 200 medical students.
