Sometimes, the frontier of robotic discovery is a lot closer than you think. In today’s case, it was right here at Smith Haven Mall, where anyone who asked could feel like a surgeon and try out Mather Hospital’s daVinci Surgical Robot. Not on patients, of course, but on colored rings, which were placed onto cones of matching colors.
Mather Hospital also proposed a challenge: whichever team could match the rings and cones most efficiently wins a prize (and bragging rights, naturally)! It was a tough competition between our team, FTC Team 8073 (Quantum Chaos), and FRC Team 564 (Longwood Robotics), but we won!
Many thanks to Mather Hospital for this awesome opportunity! See you at next year’s Interactive Health Fair!
