Robots are going to be everywhere, the technology nowadays is making them more precise, accurate and fast than humans can be. We will seize this feaures into human kind benefit. We are already doing that.
If something needs precision in this world is medical surgery, no wonder why there are several companies working on surgeon robots. But don’t panic, is not ASIMO that is going to take you naked to a cold bed, no no. As a matter of fact there aren’t any autonomuos surgical robots, yet, out there.
What we do already have, and more and more each year are this scy-fi robotic arms to aid surgeons on its hard work:
- In 1999 the first operation was performed in Germany, back in 2009 86% of all prostatic surgeries in the US were done with daVincis
- These devices can count with more than 200000 operations, only lst year, in their “backs”
- Near to 2000 of daVincis are spread in hospitals worldwide
The future is clear, within the next years some rutine surgical procedures are going to be automatic and riskless. Let’s see what’s next!
