The DaVinci surgical system of Intuitive Surgical is entering the Robot Hall of Fame.

“For those unaware, the Robot HOF is maintained by Carnegie Mellon University and the Carnegie Science Center, and an international jury of researchers, writers, and designers has just selected five new bots to join the cast: Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity, the T-800 Terminator (yes, that Terminator), the Da Vinci surgical system, iRobot’s Roomba and ‘Huey, Dewey, and Louie’ from the 1972 sci-fi flick Silent Running.” – Darren Murph, Engadget
