They Did Surgery On A Grape

A surgery on a grape may seem silly, but the now famous video was used by an Australian healthcare provider in order to exhibit the precision of their new medical robot tool, the da Vinci Surgical System. This device was created in order for surgery to be performed more efficiently as a robot’s hand does not tremble and will therefore perform the surgery better than a human.

This relates to engineering as it shows how advanced medical technology has become, as it can complete a surgery on something as small as a grape.
