Have you been confined to your bed through illness and been unable to arrange a visit to a doctor? Do you live so far away from a healthcare facility that even travelling becomes an issue? You no longer have to simply accept it and suffer on, not now that the world of virtual healthcare has dawned.

There is now an app called Virtual Doctor where users can enter their symptoms and a bit of information about themselves, and the app will conjugate all of this to diagnose their illness and recommend treatments. Sounds good, does it not?

OK, then how about this? Thanks to some wonderful technological innovations, a doctor can now ‘visit’ you in your home in the form of a hologram. He/she appears before your eyes and has a discussion with you the same as if he/she was physically in the room.
