Microsoft is big on using HoloLens to advance science and education, but what will that actually look like? You might have a good idea after today. The company has posted a video showing how Case Western Reserve University would like to use the holographic computer to teach medicine. Students could walk around anatomical models to see how bones, muscles and organs work in the context of a human body without resorting to cadavers. They could also produce simulations that let future doctors fail in a relatively low-stress environment -- there's no live patient here, after all. Although it'll probably be a while before you have to don HoloLens to complete a PhD, this clip shows that it's no longer an outlandish concept.
