There’s a lot of activities that can be helped by video conferencing. Medical care is not one of them. I don’t need a doctor who can’t even touch me to feel if I have a fever. How much better is this solution than a simple phone call? Sure, the doctor can look at you from his screen and say “Hey, mister Idontknowyou, you really look like shit… maybe you should go see a doctor… wait, I’m a doctor”.

Let’s pretend we’re not human beings, and we don’t have the needs of human beings. We don’t need to sense that someone cares about our health when we feel sick. We don’t need to feel in good hands. We just need to see a cool video conferencing system that can be activated with a button. How amazing, we’ll feel better just seeing how powerful the technology is.
