TIME: This Doctor Used Snapchat’s Spectacles To Record a Surgery

Ya know, I thought with its 10-second clip limit and the way it was being positioned by Snap that the Snapchat Spectacles wouldn’t get much interest for medical and industrial applications (which are still exploring uses for Google Glass.) Boy, was I wrong. “For Dr. Shafi Ahmed, hernia repair surgery is a routine operation. But on Dec. 9 at the London Independent Hospital, something was different. This time, as the British surgeon made an incision in his patient’s abdomen, he was wearing Snapchat’s Spectacles – a pair of sunglasses fitted with a camera that records 10-second clips for later uploading to Snapchat.”
