Honeywell Tim writes: “I was just reading about a
robot used to perform surgery. It probably shouldn’t be called a robot in
the true sense of the word, because it certainly isn’t autonomous. It’s
really just a tool that the surgeon uses. A company named Intuitive
Surgical makes a product called the da
Vinci Surgical System, that has been used
to perform surgery for a few years. It seems like a pretty cool product.
There’s an article on it in DesignFax magazine.”
