    PHOTO: A physician's view through Google Glass in the operating room

    Google Glass view in a vacant operating room

    In this picture taken with my Google Glass, you can see that I have accessed a pounds-to-kilogram conversion chart on my Glass while keeping my view and concentration on the patient.

    What I saw when I took this picture was the chart in the upper-right side of my peripheral view and yet the rest of my view was unobstructed.  If I were, for example, a pediatric anesthesiologist and I had to administer weight-based medications, a view such as this would not only be a big time-saver, but could also make for safer anesthesia practices.

    And in case you are wondering, what you see here is exactly what I saw when I was wearing Google Glass, and I was able to read the chart clearly.  One of my favorite things about this picture that I hope you can appreciate is how clear the camera is and how the super-imposed Glass screen really does not obstruct your view.
