Here’s How Wasps Have Inspired an Innovative New Tool for Keyhole Surgery

Dutch scientists have designed a new device to be used in keyhole surgery—and it’s inspired by the way parasitoid wasps lay their eggs.

At the moment, the tools used in such surgery can end up clogging because they use suction.

This new tool doesn’t have that problem because it uses friction.

According to the BBC, the Delft University of Technology team has been busy creating a working prototype.

The plan is for the tool to be ready and available for use in the next few years.
