I don't want this in my stomach!


Recommended Posts

I know that technology plays a big role in our lives in terms of entertainment, arts, sports and medicine. I know that robots now are being used in surgery and medical testings. But this tech is too scary to swallow literally:fear:

I have clicked and watched  the link you have been shared to us, it seems that it will be a great idea for the future usage in the fields of science and technology especially in the fields of medicine,, Since the primarily use of this robot was for medical purposes. Let us just hope that when it was inside the body in using for operation hope it functions well too. And I think if that happens successfully. It will be a great help to people especially those who are afraid to undergo under the knife surgery. Nice post and fact to share with. Thank you for this.,

I agree...i'd rather go with this tech specially when you talk about invasive surgery. The fact that you can go on with your life almost normally after this procedure, its very convenient. Although its still on the testing stage, the benefits could be a big help in the medicine industry and eventually to people.

I think it's cool and very helpful to view your insides without being invasive right away. Just curious why you don't want it haha, it looks really small to cause any discomfort and the alternative is much more uncomfortable. It also doesn't really invade your privacy since there's nothing really worth hiding in your stomach.

Wow, that robot was very small, I thought is bigger than that. Honestly, if I would be really sick and this robot would heal me I would not have anything against for using it. Surviving is the most important thing for a human, there are people who would support bad things only to live one more day.

I hope and dread these kinds of technology.  I hope that this "Gum Robot" continues to improve so that it can administer drugs and aid in diagnosis without harming the body.  I also fear that maybe one day a rogue nation might steal and weaponize this technology and use it to spread a biotoxin to the population.

I've got to lay off from watching too much sci-fi thrillers. :P

Yuck! I don't think I would want that in my stomach. It feels weird to have an object move inside your body. Anyways, it's still a big development as in the future it may help cure diseases. 

It's very small, you won't really feel it inside your body. You don't feel your blood circulating or you're food traveling through your digestive system.
