In a thinly veiled attempt to comfort the public about knife-wielding machinery, an enterprising team of talented surgeons and engineers at Johns Hopkins University, are looking to find the best method of producing the perfect human-fillet; I don't know if you're partial to chitlins, but you better hope that your Evil Robot Overlords aren't - Well, let's be frank, thermodynamically speaking, they will, eventually, absorb all assimilable energy resources at hand to "achieve objective", so... - because, it may very well be on the menu; thermodynamics is a bitch. A robot, specifically designed, to get all up in your guts; you're welcome...





"This advance in robotics comes courtesy of an enterprising team of surgeons and researchers at Children’s National Health System in Washington, D.C. and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, who successfully built a new robo-surgical system and programmed it to suture together intestines [ ERN - and, unceremoniously, un-suture, no doubt... ] . The team’s work and eye-opening results are detailed in a new study, titled "Supervised Autonomous Robotic Soft Tissue Surgery," published Wednesday in the journal Science Translational Medicine."
