Submission + - Telefactoring - are Waldoes getting closer?

ferd_farkle writes: Science Daily has an article about engineering advances to help steady the hands of surgeons working in really cramped spaces like eyes and throats.

From the article:
"The tools include a snakelike robot that could enable surgeons, operating in the narrow throat region, to make incisions and tie sutures with greater dexterity and precision. Another robot, the steady-hand, may curb a surgeon's natural tremor and allow the doctor to inject drugs into tiny blood vessels in the eye, dissolving clots that can damage vision."

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

Working...
