Robot Set Loose To Film Your Insides

A robot developed by researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center can move around inside the stomach or abdomen to give surgeons a new perspective on the area being operated on. It is also equipped with a retractable needle, allowing it to perform biopsies. The remote-controlled robot is only 15 millimeters in diameter, allowing it to be inserted through the small incisions in the abdomen used for keyhole surgery.
