A team of doctors at Kobe University called in a specialist recently to assist with a surgery. And while the iPad may not have been the most practical medical aide, it's the only one that comes with Plants vs. Zombies.

As you can see from the video, the iPad had to be covered in plastic and held in position by two nurses. There are more convenient medical displays out there, sure. But the iPad craze has hit Japan in a major way, so why not give it a shot in the ER? The doctors clearly got use out of it; you can see them zooming in and out on images throughout the procedure.

At this rate, we can only hope the world's ready for iPad, PFC. [Japan Probe via CrunchGear]
