Surgical Robos to Play 'Operation' Game in Annual Competition

Scientists at the University of British Columbia have constructed doctor-bots that could serve as the medical robots of tomorrow.

The 14 teams of second year graduate students have created prototypes of "surgical" robots that will take part in the annual robot competition at the university.

The objective of the "Operation" game is to remove the most metal body parts in two minutes, without removing the wrong eye and without bumping the sides of the "incisions".

According to a LiveScience report, the robots are all built from scratch and are operated autonomously - with no remote controls.
