Digital Surgeon‘ is an augment reality concept by New York-based designer Simone Ferracina that aims to let people create alternative visions of their own face.

The speculative software is aimed precisely at regaining control over the body as perceived in immersive environments. The user’s body is scanned in great detail to generate a 3D baseline model for the mapping of surgeries, and then they can select a surgery to test in front of the mirror. Once they are satisfied, the changes are broadcasted to “optoelectronic lenses” activated by proximity and computed in the viewer’s field of vision in real-time.
