Tomorrow Daily 111: Flexible spinal implants, crime scene VR, ultra-detailed CT scans and more

On today's show, we marvel at a new implant that may help paralyzed people walk again, discuss the pros and cons of allowing trial juries to use VR to revisit crime scenes, and check out the super-detailed images of the human body coming from GE's newest CT scanner.

Lots of health tech in our show today, including a flexible implant designed to help paralyzed people walk again (human trials could start as soon as June of this year), and GE's new Revolution CT scanner, which offers incredible high-res images of the human body, and with 82 percent less radiation to a scanned patient.

We're also discussing an interesting tidbit of VR news, where a team is hoping 3D renders of crime scenes could make for helpful show-and-tells for jurors during criminal trials. Can you imagine a world in which you head to jury duty with an Oculus Rift? We can't either. It's really weird to consider, isn't it?
