According to sources, it has been designed in a manner that it slips inside a person's body through a small belly button incision and inflate the patient's abdominal cavity with an inert gas to create room for work.

The robot can reportedly perforate gastric ulcers, cauterize and suture wounds or perform emergency appendectomies.

Sources say the robot will be controlled by a human operator using a device that has a monitor and a foot pedal.

Scientists say that a human operator would control the robot using two Phantom Omni haptic devices that provide feedback, a monitor and a foot pedal.
