This week in Healthcare XR

In this week’s news, we check out an augmented reality “magic” effect that “seems” we learn about how one nursing school uses VR training to make up for lost clinical practice time; and we read an interesting article about how the Mayo Clinic is using Gaming Technology in it’s Learning Platform.

It’s Magic.

Twitter user sviatoslav shows off some of his AR talent.

“To create this effect I used:

optical flow shader to detect movement

compute shader to calculate particles position based on movement

fragment shader to draw the particles

fragment shader to compose particles texture and camera feed texture

Virtual Reality Comes to the Rescue for Nursing Students Locked Out of Clinical Practice Due to Covid

However, a solution was proposed: virtual simulation technology. This technology allows students to practice their nursing skills from home in a near- fully immersive experience, and is backed in viability by research conducted by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).
