A small robotic device used by doctors for less-invasive surgery was able to reattach part of a grape skin in a painstakingly delicate operation.
The Da Vinci surgery system, which has recently begun to assist surgeons in hysterectomies and gall bladder removals, was filmed as it sutured the tiny berry back together.This video of the robot stitching together the skin of a grape demonstrates the impressive capabilities of the new technology.
The da Vinci Surgical System is used to stitch a grape back together. The same technology that can be used to suture a tiny grape is designed to help perform delicate, minimally invasive surgery.
The robot, which uses miniature instruments is remotely operated by a surgeon, performs complicated tasks such as tying knots and perfectly placing the skin on the grape during the stitching process.
