As iPad mania grips the world, fans are coming up with some surprising uses for the device. In Japan, where stores began selling the tablet in late May, a magician has incorporated the device into his act and uses it to produce illusions and sleight-of-hand tricks.

As it turns out, the iPad can also be used to save lives.

A team of doctors at a hospital run by Japan's Kobe University has used the iPad as a display during a surgical procedure.

In the video below, the iPad is wrapped in plastic and is being used by the doctors as a display that allows them to zoom in and out during the operation.
