hey guys. i found some cool videos showcasing the dexterity of the Da Vinci Surgical Robot. for me at least it was pretty impressive to see the level
of precision this machine is capable of. apparently its not a fully automated thing, rather it is controlled by a surgeon sitting at a console nearby.
he gets a full stereoscopic view through a set of optics and the device is available in 3 and 4 arm versions. they go for about $2M.
ETA it isn't perfect. i heard about it on a tv ad for attorneys filing lawsuits on behalf of folks who have undergone surgery using it.

Slightly misleading title... what's so graphic about the slicing of paper and pumpkins?
They didn't spend $2 mill just to make Halloween decorations, is there videos of this machine doing actual surgery?
As to the lawsuits, the machine is like any other procedure. Best outcomes come from surgeons with the most experience. Those with lots of hours using
the machines have very high rates of positive outcomes.
