I think it's remarkable that doctors can now do a surgical procedure via precise robots and an internet connection.  This could mean that some day, people will have access to the operations they need no matter where they are in the world. But what happens when you get *lag* in the middle of a procedure?  Or if you get hacked!  Let's think about this for a minute.
