This paper introduces the benefits of exploiting elasticity in the engineering design of surgical tools, in general, and of minimally invasive procedures, in particular. Compliant mechanisms are jointless mechanisms that rely on elastic deformation to transmit forces and motion. The lack of traditional joints in these single-piece flexible structures offers… (More)
Smartphone docking stations and strongly converged VoIP /Telephony clients are proposed and demonstrated as a new and practical model for fixed-mobile voice and video convergence.
