Surgical robot demonstrates incredible precision by peeling off a grape

Specialists in Urology at Southmead Hospital in the UK have released a video that shows the incredible precision of a prostate surgical robot in peeling the skin off a grape.

The device is called Da Vinci and 1,032 units exist worldwide. It’s worth £1.5 million.

David Gillatt, lead clinician for urology at Southmead Hospital , says: “The robot has really revolutionized the way that we treat prostate cancer and we hope to extend its use to other cancers and procedures. We hope that by bringing a robot similar to our own out of the operating theatre and into a public setting we can raise awareness of the advances that have been made in treating prostate cancer.”

The robot has four arms that are remotely controlled with foot pedals and hand controllers by an urologist.

One of the four arms contains a room with 2 endoscopic lenses, which provide a full stereoscopic vision. The device holds the fruit with one arm, while two other claws peel the grape’s skin.
