If it were a true robot I would be impressed, but it is just a guy controlling robotic hands, these have been around for years, if not decades.

"I want that guy to operate me if ever given the chance"

Only if you want your heart valves folded like a paper aeroplane.

Isn`t that what they use for keyhole surgery? not a robot anyway. I think maybe all surgery medical students have to do this.

The da Vinci isn`t a programmable robot, but it -is- a robot, as well as a technological marvel of engineering.

I got to play with one of these once. The human-to-machine interface is very intuitive, so much so that I was able to manipulate and stack 1mm cubes almost perfectly.

The surgeon that was demonstrating the machine used the micro scalpel to carve text out of magazine pages– specifically, he carved the outline of each letter, almost flawlessly, in 12-point type. It took him all of a minute to cut out and manipulate "da Vinci Robo Surgeon" on the page.

It is not a robot. It is a hydro-mechanical machine being manipulated by a human. Robots don`t require human manipulation after their initial programming.

All yours for the low, low starting price of around $1.5 million. The Si model`s around $1.7, and the S HD is right out. Couldn`t find a price estimate on that one, but I`d guess $2.+

Where was the wow moment? You could see he was using a keyhole surgery robot. Want a decent movie that demonstrates how these things can REALLY be used?....

I honestly wasn`t surprised at all. Sure, it`s a great feat and sure, the robot is fantastic and cool, but I still knew from the beginning that the paper was that small. Thus, the ending "wow moment" was more of an "... Yes I know."

very disappointing. I was expecting the coin to be larger with respect to the airplane.

Note that you view the folding through a scope or a monitor rendering your perception to 2D.

was i supposed to not realize that it was so tiny? I`d be worried to have a surgeon poking around inside me with a robot if he can`t fold a little airplane first.

Is that a one cents coin? That`s pretty impressive. Would be better if it was a robot doing it on it`s own accord.

Surely this is some sort of training exercise in how to use the thing?

S`not a robot, it`s a surgical tool that they`re demonstrating the accuracy of. If you`ll notice, it cuts away to a surgeon operating the controls.

I think he needs a few more practice sessions. I admit that is quite impressive using a machine like that, but I would still prefer a surgeon in the room. I can fold a better plane than that, and smaller, despite the fact that I abuse my hands.

You`re supposed to fold it twice on the inside!
