Vicarious Surgical Robot

These novels (remember, I am writing the 2nd right now) are based on real technology that is in your hospital right now. If you read the Secret History (freebie below) you know some of that story. Like everything, the actual story is long, involved, and complicated. It would make a great business book (but I’m not writing it).

One of my favorite robotic surgery platforms right now is made by Vicarious Surgical. They’re still in the R&D phase. The company is in Boston (Cambridge) and was started by some geniuses from MIT. They have a new design that puts the camera and the instruments on two small shafts that enter the body through a small incision. Their website has some brief video clips that show how it works. And there’s a flashy marketing video on YouTube here. (I recommend watching it with the sound off. All they say is “we are changing the world”. Like who isn’t these days?)
