We invite you to be a surgeon for the day with the Mako Robotic-arm, an innovative surgical system used by orthopaedic surgeons across Australia to improve the lives of patients.

We are entering a world where people need to interact with a range of robots in their daily lives. Today, you will not only get a chance to experience being a surgeon and complete a fun task with a Robot, but also help QUT researchers understand human-robot interactions in a game-like environment.
