Microsoft Surface for medical applications

I found two medical related projects for the Microsoft Surface table.

This one was shown at CES 2009. It’s a tool for medical education. It seems like a lot of revolutionary projects in the medical field are done for education (see my post about HeartWorks and the VisualBody). I guess its because real medical applications have to follow a lot of restrictions and need to be carefully tested.

Like HeartWorks, this project also utilizes tangible interactive objects. In this case its a physical model of a brain that can be placed on the table to enrich the brain model with digital data. Of course they use multitouch, all kinds of online communications and information from the cloud.  Also they show a flexible display. That’s cool, but doens’t really make sense.

VitraView by InterKnowlogy is the second medical project for Microsoft Surface I’ve found.
