VOTW: Robot Makes Tiny Paper Aeroplane

If you’re in the medical profession, you might recognize the machine in this week’s Video of the Week. The da Vinci surgical robot provides surgeons with the kind of precision that cannot be matched by the gloved, golden-hands of even the most talented surgeon. He also makes paper aeroplanes.

Of course, one could argue that the impressive part of all of this is the skill exhibited by Dr. James Porter, the man at the da Vinci’s controls, and one might be right. Okay, smarty-pants: who’s fault is it that this robot throws like a girl?

    Super cool tool for surgery...

    Not really a robot though, is it. It's a really technically impressive tool, though!

    But, can it play Crysis 2?

    Oh yes it can, but its unwillingness to shoot anyone makes it useless, it only wants to make friends and make them paper aeroplanes...
