Engadget reports of the world’s thinnest LCD for cell-phones from Toshiba.  In the OR we have been limited by the use of traditional display technologies.  One potential liberating technology is head mounted displays (HMD’s).  I have done research on these and used them in the OR.  Current technology is limited by weight, thickness, and resolution.  This is a new light weight LCD and I forsee similar systems trickling down to surgeon’s displays.  This one is just 240×320 QVGA resolution but that will change.  Small size is handles with magnification lenses so that part’s ok!
