Dr. Hutauruk recently spearheaded the effort to develop a sand animation that explains the concept of wavefront to patients. "PowerPoint is not entertaining," Dr. Hutauruk said. "This is why I came up with the idea of 'Wavefront in the Sand' [the title of Dr. Hutauruk's explanatory video]."
The video, which was presented this year at the APACRS Film Festival in Singapore, has none of the bells and whistles of PowerPoint or even a TV video, but it does have an engaging artist's touch. "Sometimes patients don't pay attention to what I am showing them on TV," Dr. Hutauruk said. "But using the sand animation that I put in the waiting room, patients pay attention. They find it attractive, wondering, 'How can someone make pictures with the sand?' They say it is an amazing video."
