Unusual Robotic Surgical Skills
January 6, 2012 § 2 Comments
In a series of videos, surgeons at the Swedish Medical Center in Seattle present their skills with the DaVinci surgical robot in novel ways, including folding a paper plane, lacing an American football and painting fingernails.
A very creative way to communicate the precision of robotic surgery to the public. You can find all the videos here.
I love the various – un-medical related – things they are doing with the DaVinci. While many say it may be pointless, I think it shows off the high capabilities of the robot, as well as the many possibilities for future uses.
But, will it blend…
…and will it start acting like Bender?
