Kinect & Osirix

Check out this video I received. It shows Microsoft kinect being used to control Osirix. It looks like a great product and I expect that we will see a lot more similar interfaces showing up soon.
Thanks for sending me the link Steffen.

As they mention in the video the use of hands free controls has major benefits and allows doctors to prevent infection and does not tie them down to a keyboard or mouse.

I hope all the major PACS vendors are looking at this and making their own versions that integrate with their products as I think a lot of doctors are going to start demanding this type of technology for their theaters once they see what is possible.
