ESA has developed a new augmented reality unit to provide medical expertise to astronauts in space. The Computer Assisted Medical Diagnosis and Surgery System (CAMDASS) is a head-mounted system that provides 3D augmented reality guidance, allowing the wearer to diagnose medical conditions and even perform surgery. The system combines the user’s view with computer graphics to guide precise surgical procedures.
