mixing the real and the virtual
Mixing the Real and the Virtual!
  • Can we mix virtual people with real people?
  • Can we mix real people with virtual people?
simulation training using telepresence
Simulation & Training using Telepresence
  • Benefits:
    • Clinicians and other professionals with heavy demands on their time can participate in a simulation from anywhere in the hospital (or outside it)
    • Training can take place anywhere eg a simulation can be run in a patient’s room immediately after a real patient is discharged from that room
is it possible
Is it possible?
  • Light Field capture and display
    • Perceptually the same as an optical wavefront
    • Based on Integral Photography invented by Lippmann in 1908!
  • Acoustic Wave Field capture and generation

telepresence in a hospital24
Telepresence in a Hospital
  • In the future, hospitals can be built where all walls are two way lightfields so that a person or an object can be projected in “full” 3D into any room of a hospital and, conversely, any patient can be imaged and viewed in “full” 3D

examples of the operational use of telepresence in a hospital
Examples of the Operational Use of Telepresence in a Hospital
  • Specialists can attend a “code blue” as well as the crash team
  • Nursing staff can respond through telepresence to a patient’s “call button” and assess whether have to go physically
  • A patient can be triaged in an ambulance by a trauma specialist
