The Visible Ear Simulator (VES) is a freeware temporal bone surgical simulator utilizing a high-fidelity haptic and graphical voxel model compiled from segmented digital images of fresh frozen sections. A haptic device provides the 3-dimensional handling and drilling with force-feedback in real time. In a multilingual user interface the integrated tutor function provides stepwise instructions during drilling through an intuitive, volumetric approach. A censor function draws on metrics derived from the simulator to provide instant and summary feedback for the user. The VES can be downloaded from http://ves.cg.alexandra.dk.
