Remember the doctor that wore Google Glass during surgery? Well, he's at it again but, this time around, he was wearing a pair of Snapchat shades in the operating room. Would you let a guy wearing shades perform surgery on you?

UK teaching surgeon Dr Shafi Ahmed has "livestreamed" an operation using Snapchat spectacles, which are sunglasses with a small camera integrated, allowing the wearer to record what they are seeing. The routine hernia repair procedure took place at the London Independent Hospital. Clips from it were posted to Snapchat.
