Quote: There are no miracles...just your avatar lending a hand.
At the Copper Queen Hospital, Jim Hallsted waits for Dr. Hal Rice to stitch his eye brow cut. The doctor's hands shake back and forth as though the needle was a baton. Moments before contact, Hal's hands suddenly calm as gracefully stitches close the wound. After the final tie and cut, Dr. Rice's hands resume their shake.
Hal's avatar and I examine the record to understand the transition to smooth hands. I view the timeline and decide to pastel four records and show the last two below. The first record shows Jim sitting in a chair in front of Dr. Rice. The next record is a location far, far away, where Hal's avatar observes the wound preparation through a bubble viewer. Right before the first stitch, Hal's avatar inserts his face, forearms and hands into the bubble. Hal's avatar is inside the avatar on Dr. Rice's shoulder. In the last record, the avatar bends down and imposes his face, forearms and hands over the doctor's face, forearms and hands. Dr. Rice's hands immediately calm to stitch the cut.
