Microsoft Kinect soon to be used in the OR

So I came across this interesting article about the use of Microsoft Kinect as an interface to control radiologic imaging in the Operating Rooms without compromising sterility of doctor's hands and wasting a lot of time.
The pilot study is currently being held at one of my city's hospitals, and it really looks promising.
