A demonstration of the VeinViewer – a device which allows you to see through the skin. The VeinViewer uses near-infrared light to detect vessels and blood up to 10mm beneath the surface, and projects a picture onto the skin to reveal vessel structure and blood flow in real time.

Clip taken from the 2013 Royal Institution CHRISTMAS LECTURES: Life Fantastic Lecture 1 – Where do I come from?

We used one of these in the ED. A lot of people hated it, but I found it really useful sometimes.
