Personal portable technologies have had impressive advancements in recent years. Google has recently introduced Glass, a device that is worn like conventional glasses, but that combines a computerized central processing unit, hands-free ability, high definition camera, microphone, bone-conduction transducer and wireless capabilities.1
This project aims to formally study and validate the use of Google Glass as a tool for surgical education.
Both groups will then complete a survey evaluating different aspects of the Google Glass videos in comparison to direct observation in the operating room.
