Virtual Reality viewers around the world will feel like they’re in the operating theater when a London surgeon performs an operation on a cancer patient. The surgery will start at 1 p.m. on April 14.
The technology improves on the in-person experience of sitting in the theater since viewers will be able to position themselves anywhere. The surgeon, Shafi Ahmed, is a pioneer in the use of VR for surgery.
