#679: Facebank

I was reading today about a Glasgow inventor who has created a software technique for visualising plastic surgery when it’s still at the planning stage for an individual.

It occurred to me that this includes an element of guesswork that could be lessened.

Today’s invention is to store a 3-D scan of everyone‘s face who is involved in hazardous activities eg the armed forces, motor racing, emergency services etc. If they sustain serious facial injury, there will at least be a ‘before’ image which might help a surgeon understand what the end result of reconstructive surgery should attempt to be.
