Researchers add eye control to Da Vinci surgical robot

Eye-driven interfaces are far from revolutionary, but with one of the world’s most famous robotic surgeon’s ability to interpret eye movements is very probably a giant leap forward in the pursuit of less invasive surgery. According to reports, British researchers have the new software in the Da Vinci robosurgeon to human surgeons to sit at a console viewing direction of the movement of the robot mechanical arms into the body of the patient. ” In addition, the program tracks eye movements and “build a 3D map of the area of tissue the surgeon is looking,” and it seems as if the developments could be used on a variety of other ER-robots. Just make sure that your doctor chugs a couple of Red Bulls before you – do not want their eyes wander aimlessly, would we now?
