Surgeons are embracing technology's cutting edge, using the latest in augmented, virtual and mixed reality to transform medical training. Among the devices the Royal College of Surgeons is planning to explore is the Microsoft HoloLens, a mixed reality headset, released to developers this year, which shows hovering 3D holograms. The college said it was teaming up with education group Pearson to harness immersive technologies for training students.
