A blog reader of mine informed me about this YouTube video of a surgeon, Dr. James Porter, making a paper airplane using a daVinci surgical robot.
For those unawares, the daVinci robot is used to assist the surgeon in "difficult-to-reach" procedures. It is used in the fields of urology, ENT, gynecology, and general surgery.
There is much debate whether the daVinci robot really is worth it.
This paper airplane video is a perfect example of why it is NOT worth the $1.3 million price tag.
Because I can make a paper airplane with my own two hands that is just as good as the one made by the robot, even if it is smaller than a penny... and I can do it faster and WAY more cheaply.
I should also point out that the paper airplane made by the robot couldn't even fly...
NOW... what would have been a much more impressive video and would highlight specifically what the daVinci robot can do that a human would not have been able to do is to make a paper airplane INSIDE of a wine bottle.
