tiny medical robot (with claws!)
« on: March 08, 2007, 12:14:15 PM »
found this on the BBC website today:

"A prototype miniature robot that can be inserted through an incision to perform medical procedures inside the body. The beetle-shaped robot, developed by researchers at Ritsumeikan University in Japan, has a small camera, sensors and a drug delivery device. It weighs just five grams."

it looks kinda scary . . .
