Okay, so technically this one isn't actually about games, but sometimes something really interesting crops up in the VR world and we feel the need to tell you about it.

Later in the week you're going to be able to watch a live-streamed VR operation. Yeah, you read that right.

Dr. Shafi Ahmed of St. Barts Medical School will be performing an operation on a patient with colon cancer, and you can slip on your headset and watch along, if that's the sort of thing you're into.

“As a champion of new technology in medicine, I believe that virtual and augmented reality can revolutionise surgical education and training, particularly for developing countries that don’t have the resources and facilities of NHS hospitals,” said Dr. Ahmed.

If you want to join in (not literally, that would be very messy) you need to head to the App Store or Google Play Store and download the VRinOR app. Then slot your phone into a Google Cardboard or similar device.

There's also a version available for the Samsung Galaxy VR, which you can find in the Oculus Store.

This is another excellent example of how VR can be used in real-world situations, giving students a chance to experience an OR experience without actually having to be there.

The stream starts at 1pm GMT on the 14th of April. Maybe don't bring snacks along to this one though, eh?
