Amazing Robot Performs Surgery On Grape And Stitches It Back Together (Video)

A robot-like medical tool was recorded stitching up a grape using an unbelievably intricate technique.

The device is called the da Vinci Surgical System, Daily Mail reports, and its movements are controlled through a console held by a surgeon standing a few feet away.

Mostly utilized for hysterectomies and gall bladder removals, the da Vinci Surgical System is used to avoid large incisions during surgeries performed on areas spanning less than 2 centimeters in size.

The da Vinci Surgical System made its debut in 2000 and now costs hospitals over $100,000 a year to use.

This video showcases the device's precision as it gently lays a piece of skin onto a grape and stitches it back on.

The piece of skin is under a centimeter thick, so the slightest increase in speed or force could cause it to tear.

But the grape looks as good as new after the device pulls a string in and out of several tiny holes and seals a secure knot.

Among the da Vinci Surgical System's other talents, according to Daily Mail, is creating miniature paper planes.
