Grape surgery demonstrates delicacy of new surgical robot .

How does operating on a grape help anyone? Well, it’s a great demonstration of medical technology, for one thing!

Da Vinci, the robot surgeon

This surgical system, aptly named the ‘Da Vinci,’ acts as an extension of the surgeon’s hands as it performs extraordinarily delicate cuts and sutures on the skin of a grape. The cool thing being that it might as well be an organ that’s being operated on here.

Steady hands, delicate operations

With operations on a scale as small as this, having a steady hand is paramount in order to prevent any unintended damage from the implements in highly sensitive areas.
And they don’t come much more steady than robotic, do they?
