ByronScott writes “Doctors at a British hospital have just carried out the world’s first surgery using a remote-controlled robot. The procedure fixed a patient’s irregular heart rhythm, and although the doctor was in the same hospital as the patient — just through the wall in another room — developers of the RC surgery technology believe this is the first step toward long-distance operations. Imagine a doctor in London performing surgery on your heart in New York!”
