Robot hand performs remote breast checks

New Scientist Breaking News - Robot hand performs remote breast checks: "Life-saving breast examinations could soon be performed by a robotic hand that combines ultrasound with an artificial sense of touch.

The robotic breast examiner was devised by researchers at Michigan State University in the US. They say it will enable a medical specialist to examine women from a remote location, perhaps even from the other side of the world."

See the pic. And try not to smile.
