Video: A Robot folding an Origami Crane

Actually, it’s really a surgeon whose controlling the robot to fold this origami crane.  When I first saw this video, I was amazed with the precision of the ‘hands’.  I hope you are amazed as I was when I watched it the first time.  It’s difficult for me to fold a crane that small and I have lots of experience :)

I actually never knew what this robot was for so I just ‘googled’ it.   It’s a minimally invasive medical device that was developed for prostate cancer surgery by da Vinci Prostatectomy.  Wow, that’s fascinating!
