This is pretty incredible to see, though the title is somewhat misleading if you think it's doing the work all on it's own.

It seems like almost every day I see some new piece of technology and am left amazed.

Thank goodness, now I can eat that $1000 grape.



Very impressive, it is all possible even with unpredictable movement by the subject so, overall benefit.

I only just noticed your allusion to an operator but, I believe this can also be fully automated.

I might be worried about that disclaimer, "additional time under anesthesia."

I hope they catch the person who cut up the grape.

Truly is remarkable where technology is going, thanks for sharing!

Careful, the grape rights lobby is all-encompassing, we could incur legal complications just by commenting on it.

Why would you want to stitch a grape together? I won't eat it when it is full of stitches.


I think a doctor can do stitching as good as that without the help of a robot. I've had stitches about four times in my life and the doctor did a good job.

Great video, S+F.

That actually made me feel something in a special kind of way. Its like those stories you always hear about, but don't get to see first hand. Watching the procedure done on a grape made me appreciate how far we've come. If a robot could save my life, I'd let it.

It's a good start.

Not impressed though.

If we remain impressed, we may falter.

this looks to be geared to more complicated surgery probably on organs in very tight spaces. That was the probably the point of showing it off stitching a grape inside a bottle. Its like a concept. if it can heal something as sensitive as a grape in that confined of a space, it is subtle, delicate, and precise enough to be utilized for some very complicated and dificult procedures, involving organs as well.

I am impressed.

Speedy recovery little grape!

Wow that's really cool. But did you check out the disclaimer dialogue at the end of the video?

Yeah, it will probably make it a faster recovery for some surgeries if they don't have so big an opening to heal.

plus you got to think that if a surgeons hands are becoming unsteady with age, this tool would really be able to remove that disadvantage. Specialized surgeries can have a big toll on the hands over the career of a physician considering how many hours even a "simple" operation can take. Even with shaky hands the physician would be more qualified than a grad student from the years or decades of experience. utilizing this robotic assitance may help others by preventing someone from being forced into an early retirement as a result of unsteady hands.

The title isn't misleading. It's doesn't say "autonomous".

Combine this with an Oculus Rift and you can do surgery from anywhere on the planet.

Hi, stitch fans?

I guess I had almost the same "works" on my left eye,
because of its retina, and without robot !! B-)

This is basically just a surgeon using a tool to stitch a suture. Cool tool, but it's simply an extension of the human's hands. The human is still doing all of the thinking and all of the guiding of the needle and thread.

I will be more impressed when an autonomous robot can SEE and recognize what exactly needs to be sutured, grab the needle and thread itself, and then do the suturing itself.
