If you're interested in where enormous amounts of data meets cutting edge graphics, where the human body meets the power of big iron, and where the future is happening right now, you'll want to watch this 17-minute talk.

    Thank you for this. I need to think on this one for a while. But one use (other than the brain.) that this would be good for is retinas. A quick tool for diagnosis. A detatched retina must be treated asap. I want to see what all can be done with these tools.
