weekend which is about 60%. some students at the university of iowa may have invented the future of brain surgery. the undergrad students put a robot together for a senior project. could be the cutting edge when it comes to being under the knife. kcrg-tv9's forrest saunders reports. if you haven't seen the new star wars film, this droid bb-8 stole the show. a real cool robot, even if he's science fiction. "we thought gettingngt to move would be like the easiest part. but, it was pretty tough." this one isn't, though. you're looking at the creation of three ui computer engineering students. they built this bot for a senior project. the idea came from an ui doctor who said for years brain surgeons have faced a major annoyance in the or. "they yse these big microscopes. they have these head pieces up
11:33 am
looking at the brain, theyave to strain their neck and look through it."sometimes docs have to do that for up to ten hours. plus, surgeons have to try not to look away, for fear it would change what they're iewing. "this was definitely something that was needed. they're usisig very, very old microscopes." the robot is designed to replace all that. it's got cameras that can track specific spots in the brain, like a tumor for example. the images are se up into a headset, which the surgeon can wear, meaning the doctor can moe his or her head and not worry about losing what is being looking at. ct scansnsor mriiimages can be placeeon top of the camera feed. and, here's the other cool thing, a hands free controller which allows the doc to adjust the bot without touching it. "they don't have to take their gloves off to move the robot around. it's all in the computer." these guys put it all together and wrote the computer code in a matter of months. now, that it's complete the prototype is good enough that patents have been filed. no longer science fiction. this droid is science fact. "i've never hea of anything like this being done before. hopefully it helps people in the future."

" we uaw good results from fall to spring that our kids did make nice growth so i anticipate that 24 percent of third graders not proficiency last spring will be lower this spring.
