Four inventions that trace their origins to Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science and, particularly, the Robotics Institute, have been honored by the annual Best of What's New Awards by Popular Science.

This year's winners, published in the magazine's December issue, include the Flex System, a head and neck surgery tool based on snake robot research.

Medrobotics Corp. announced earlier this year that it would begin limited marketing in Europe of a robot-assisted surgical device based on the bio-inspired robot research of Howie Choset, Carnegie Mellon University professor of robotics.
