Virtual reality development. A graphics engineer checking a computer model of a 'keyhole' surgical tool for a virtual reality (VR) system. The VR system will allow surgeons to practise 'keyhole' surgery techniques before actually performing the procedure on a patient. This means that the surgeons will be able to test various approaches to the procedure, allowing them to minimise both the invasiveness of the operation and the time needed. This system is being developed by ISS Ltd of Salford, UK.
