    Surgeon Jim Porter wanted to show off the advanced skills of Swedish Medical Center’s precision surgical robots. So he made YouTube videos of the robots doing some non-surgical things.

    Like making and flying a paper airplanes. And giving his daughter a manicure.
    Early in March, surgeons from the Swedish Orthopedic Institute showcased their new robotic-assisted technology by streaming live a knee-replacement surgery on the internet, complete with live chat.

    The live surgery and the YouTube videos offer a look at the latest medical technology, and also a look at how the competitive health-care industry is using advances in technology to market their brand and services.

    Big deal it can make paper airplanes—so can I?! I'll be impressed when it can feel emotions, like love and loss and then realize how empty its existence is and self destruct. Then I'd be impressed.
