A robot in your mouth?


Israel continues to be a hothouse of inventiveness. The latest product coming from its research laboratories is a disposable dental micro—robot, for dental implants. The system, which has been approved by the US FDA for marketing, will make dental implant surgery cheaper and less painful.

It should be remembered that Israel is the only country in the Middle East which is contributing to humanity through technical innovation. Unless you count suicide bomber vests as a technological contibution to humanity, that is.
