The futuristic robot that probes brains in Ender’s Game is no futuristic fantasy. The real-life machine, known as the Raven II surgical system, was built at the University of Washington and has already been used in brain tumor operations. The National Science Foundation has funded development of seven of these open-source robots, and they will soon be distributed to cutting edge medical facilities across the US.
