The Da Vinci robot, a remotely-controlled tool for surgeons, is capable of performing all-robotics surgery, but sometimes we like to see it tackle delicate, everyday, non-medical tasks to see just how amazingly dextrous it is. That might mean folding a tiny paper airplane, or, in this case, lacing a football. We always thought football needed more robots (it only has the one, right? That dancing one on Fox broadcasts?).
The incredible innovations, like drone swarms and perpetual flight, bringing aviation into the world of tomorrow. Plus: today's greatest sci-fi writers predict the future, the science behind the summer's biggest blockbusters, a Doctor Who-themed DIY 'bot, the organs you can do without, and much more.
