Security for virtualized datacentres

Microsoft's Xbox 360 Kinect add on isn't just for gaming. Swiss scientists have used open source drivers to develop a prototype remote control mechanism for medical equipment.

The experimental rig uses both gestures and voice commands, as the following video from the developers, at the Institute of Forensic Medicine at the University of Bern, Switzerland, shows:

You might think all of the actions featured in the demo could be performed more quickly and easily with a mouse and a few clicks. True, but a surgeon in theatre won't be able to use a mouse when he or she is operating.

The Vitopsy rig would allow the surgeon to access crucial patient data while working. ®
