Enter a world of space-age hospitals entirely run by a computer with a rare English language screening of the anime ‘U-18 Knew’ featuring the anti-hero and genius surgeon Black Jack, the creation of Manga master Osamu Tezuka. Afterwards discover the reality behind the fantasy as a surgeon and experts in biomedical engineering discuss the current and future capabilities of medical robots. They will challenge some misconceptions and allay our fears, as well as demonstrating some of the technologies featured in the exhibition Sci-Fi Surgery: Medical Robots. The discussion will be facilitated by Gareth Mitchell, presenter of ‘Digital Planet’. The exhibition and the Hunterian Museum will be open throughout the evening from 6pm.
